NW Noggin volunteers LOVE collaborating with this critical community center for services and support for homeless youth.  P:ear provides a warm, welcoming, arts-filled educational space in downtown Portland, filled with caring staff and volunteers for young people, many of whom lack access to safe housing.

PLEASE DONATE:  P:ear: creatively mentoring homeless youth

Over the past few years, we’ve organized several series of weekly visits to P:ear, and had a terrific time discussing the brain, screen printing t-shirts, messing up taste buds with miracle berries, and attaching electrodes to measure our own cortical activity…

Noggin outreach participants must complete a mandatory volunteer training offered at P:ear a few times each year…
