Alder Commons is a community-based organization, which is why a community of interested stakeholders is coming together to get it started! Every person brings with them a fresh perspective, a different set of experiences, and a unique set of ideas, that can strengthen our community.

Organizing Team

Our Organizing Team is made up of community members who are excited to help get Alder Commons off the ground. Volunteer organizers typically work as part of a committee (or committees) that helps make decisions with input from the greater Alder Commons Community. There are also lots of opportunities to help out with a low level of commitment at upcoming space-building work parties.

Our current list of volunteers consists of youth, artists, parents, educators, academics, and community activists. Please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering!

Board of Directors

We’re currently transitioning our Board of Directors from a small “Founding” Board into a “Working” Board that is bigger, and more representative of the Northeast Portland community.

Our location is situated at the intersection of Cully, Concordia, and Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhoods. People who live in these neighborhoods, or identify as minorities, are especially encouraged to get involved!

If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in joining the Alder Commons Board of Directors, please email us.
