Become a Board Member! / by Carlos Chavez

Morpheus Youth Project (MYP) is currently looking for community members to join their board. MYP is a non-profit located at SE 122nd Plaza that works with under-served and incarcerated youth in the Portland area. Recent programs include an art and dance workshop for high school students, a breakdancing program at Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center and a podcast project in collaboration with KBOO community radio.

Board members are expected to participate in monthly board meetings and help fundraise for the organization. Board members fundraise in many different ways, such as hosting small concerts or setting up an online auction. One board member is making a compilation album with local hip-hop artists and youth that will be sold online and at Morpheus events.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about youth and committed to our vision, while being energetic about raising money and developing our organization. Experience in those two areas is a plus.

This is an opportunity to become more involved in the lives of youth in your community. By serving on the board, you are helping to shape the direction and impact of an organization. You can contact Morpheus’ Executive Director, Carlos Chavez, to learn more: carlos@morpheusyouth.org.
