East Portland Welcomes You! eastportland.org

Explore partnership opportunities to create and sustain "community-center" activities at key schools.

David Douglas was used as a meeting space for the mentorship group in the Building Cultural Bridges video project, and we met there approximately eight times over the course of a year. We attended the Parks and Recreation community citizenship class at the East Portland Community and taped the ceremony, as well as interviewed Amanda Fritz. We also attended the International Soccer Tournament and filmed the participants. By basing our community education component within the schools, and bringing the students into community spaces, we cross-pollinated community members with both the schools and parks in East Portland.
