Newport Chapter

Volunteer

 

We’re always looking for volunteers to help out with everything the Newport chapter does. Your time commitment can be as little as an hour a week, or as much as you’d like. When you volunteer, the Newport Surfrider Chapter provides you with all the supplies, training, and logistical support you need. There’s even a Bend <–> Coast rideshare program.
