Beaverton Awareness Day


The 2016 Leadership Beaverton Class is proud to announce “Beaverton Awareness Day” Saturday, May 14th, 2016 from 10:00am to 1:00pm directly in front of the Beaverton City Library. Beaverton Awareness Day is an event that encourages our community to learn about and find ways to engage with Beaverton’s non-profits & volunteer opportunities. Through many conversations and partnerships with local organizations, the most dominant need is “engagement, awareness and participation” to truly make a bigger impact on the needs of our community. Our goal is to create an annual event, where over 50 Non-Profits and community organizations can share their story and needs with people in the community that are looking for ways to get involved. We have reached out to over 200 groups in the area and are seeing an incredible response of groups wanting to be involve.
