• Bridlemile welcomes volunteers!

    Bridlemile would not be the same without the work of volunteers. We thank you for considering a volunteer opportunity! 

    Portland Public Schools utilizes a visitor/volunteer management system for persons visiting schools. PPS is committed to ensuring our schools are safe places for our students and staff, and this system enables us to be certain we know who is in our schools at all times. Volunteers must first be approved and background checked by the district. To apply to be a volunteer, please visit pps.net/volunteer

    If Approved
    If you clear the Volunteer Background Check, you will receive an email that you are now approved to volunteer. This approval is good for three years for any PPS school.  

    If Denied
    If you are denied, you will receive an email. If you have questions about your denial of approval, you may contact the Security Services Department at (503) 916-3000. 


    The first time you volunteer at the school, you will need to bring a scannable government-issued identification card. More information is available on the Visitor/Volunteer Procedures webpage.


    Completed and current background checks are required for all field trips. Please be sure your background status is current well in advance of signing up to help with any field trips. Thanks!
