OSU Extension volunteers help us serve communities across Oregon. They work in Every Extension program area and come from all walks of life. Master-level volunteers are trained by university experts and in turn dedicate their time to teaching and enriching their communities.
As a volunteer, you could lead activities, extend educational programs, answer questions, or organize community service events.
Volunteer opportunities include:
In addition, there are many opportunities to volunteer at educational events and on advisory boards in your area.
Contact your local OSU Extension office to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
We work with a variety of partners — individuals, businesses, private-sector clubs and organizations, and other government agencies — to bring address needs, issues, and opportunities across our state and beyond.
We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with new partners. Contact your local OSU Extension office if you would like to partner with OSU Extension.
OSU Extension is funded through a combination of state and federal funds, grants, fees and gifts.
Individuals, corporations, associations, and foundations give gifts of all sizes to various OSU Extension programs. All donations are vital to strengthening our programs. OSU Extension also accepts donations including securities and property (real estate, land, forestland, etc.).
These private investments help us strengthen the health, well-being, and security of youth, families, and communities; conserve and enhance natural resources; and strengthen agriculture and food systems across Oregon and beyond.
