We inspire young people to create community-level change through environmental education, advocacy, and career development.

Groundwork Portland is one of the only Portland-based environmental organizations led by and focused on people of color. We use our unique position to bridge long-standing gaps between communities of color and the environmental policy-making table. Our programs focus on environmental workforce development, leadership programs for young people, and advocating for environmental justice at the policy-making table.
