We are so excited for the most recent addition to our team! Kyle, pictured here, with our first Transformation Trip of the year, is a Teen Challenge Intern and an amazing gift to BPM!  He has become knitted into our little family here, and has jumped in with both feet.

Kyle is shining as our TTrip lead, connecting with kids, and their leaders, teaching, engaging and bringing a unique gift set to our offerings.

We can’t wait for how this year will shape up. Loving our city, loving each other – it does amazing things!

 

Time to think about your summer!

Have you been wondering how you might give and grow significantly this summer?  We offer summer internships that will challenge your vision, enrich you sense of self, and build your resume.

Check out our internship page under programs to gain a fuller picture – and let us know if we can help get you started.

We love to highlight the wonderful things we get to be a part of around here!  First Door is the name of our after school homework club at one of our established BTown Kids sites.  Amazing teachers and volunteers create a space where children can thrive, and where they are loved and known.

If you’d like a deeper look at what is going on at First Door, here you go!

Night Strike Canceled

In preparation for severe weather, we are unfortunately canceling our Night Strike event this evening. We desire to keep our volunteers and guests safe and warm, and we believe the best way to do this is to cancel the night. We hope to see you after the break. Stay safe tonight!

Night Strike Winter Break

snow-crystal-photography-930x280

Our annual winter break is coming up!

Please be aware that December 8th will be our last Night Strike of the year. Portland Saturday Market’s Festival of the Last Minute will be commencing in the space during our absence, so please head on down and support local businesses! This season we hope that our committed regular volunteers and staff will take this month-long opportunity to rest, reflect, and refresh for the year to come and hope that everyone has a great holiday season. Night Strike will be resuming on January 12th and we hope to see you then!
