Have you seen me?
As a central member of the p:ear team, the Kitchen Coordinator will work collaboratively with leadership and program staff to offer 2 healthy, nutritious meals per day. p:ear’s food program is the hub for shared meals that provide homeless young people with the opportunity to create and share food with other students, staff and volunteers and instills a sense of belonging while providing an experience for them to know they are cared for, appreciated, and worthy of being nurtured.
I bet you have.
p:ear Bike Works is looking for a dynamic individual to manage, grow and help develop our social purpose enterprise community bike shop. In partnership with the Rosewood Initiative, p:ear Bike Works will help support Portland’s Eastside communities, providing low cost, low barrier access to bike education, repair and sales of refurbished bicycles and parts. Our shop is located within the Rosewood Initiative building at 16126 SE Stark St.
Maybe clattering down a sidewalk on my board. Or sleeping in a doorway or hunkering under a hoodie in the rain. Look me in the I, and you’ll see an artist wielding a brush, a student hungry to learn, an athlete ready to climb. See me the way p:ear sees me: strong and vibrant. In p:ear I find love, hope and trust.
My heart steadies. My mind blooms. I look myself in the I and see all that I can be—despite history, despite odds. In part because I am tenacious. In part because of p:ear.
Support from people like you are what makes p:ear’s work so transformative for our over 760 enrolled youth. There are many ways to give to p:ear this holiday season. Make a one-time donation through the Willamette Week's Give!Guide, or give a small amount year-round when you sign up as a p:ear core member (our monthly giving club). Check out our website’s “donate supplies” page to offer up needed items, or make p:ear the recipient of a holiday party fund drive!
