Welcome to the Portland Volunteer Adventures Group! Last year I volunteered on the North Shore of O'ahu with a community service project pulling weeds out of a taro patch. This simple half day project left its mark on me in ways that I never could have imagined. Although I love a beachy vacation (and still take these trips often), I am looking for folks who would like to experience the kind of trip that nourishes your body and your spirit. The kind of trip where you will gain enriching memories, experiences and real connections with not only the members of your travel group but with people of another culture. Who is ready for the volunteering adventure of a lifetime?
