JANUARY 6, 2020 – PORTLAND, OR – Passion Impact is excited to announce that on January 6th, 2020, Adrianna Davis began work as the first High School Program Coordinator. Her work with the Cultural Resource Centers at Oregon State University gave her the leadership and insight into managing multiple teams running culturally specific events. After graduating, Adrianna also led program curriculum development and implementation at The International School in Portland, OR. Her position will require the revision of all current programs with a social justice lense while also working with Passion Impact’s current in-school partners to design more curriculum connected workshops in AVID classes.

Passion Impact has been all volunteer-run and with Adrianna joining the team, partners, parents, and students will be provided with more intentional services. Relationships are core to Passion Impact with students at the center and Adrianna will elevate this through culturally responsive curriculum, empowerment, and support.

“I’m beyond excited to be joining the Passion Impact team. I can’t wait to get to know the students better and to serve as their High School Program Coordinator. I have a feeling we are going to do really great things this year!” – Adrianna Davis. Read more about Adrianna.

As Passion Impact continues to serve students in the Portland Metro area, the need for staff support is increasingly more vital. Consider making a gift today at www.passionimpact.org/support-students/

OCTOBER 18, 2019 – Portland, OR – Passion Impact partnered with Friends of Mt. Tabor Weed Warriors and all freshman teachers at Madison High School to host a three hour cleanup event at Mt. Tabor on October 16, 2019. 

While the sophomores and juniors took their PSAT’s, 140 Madison High School freshmen were boarded onto buses and transported to Mt. Tabor where they received gloves and ponchos. After spending nearly three hours clearing ivy, picking up trash, and weeding hillsides, the students returned to the pavilion for hot chocolate. In true Passion Impact form, they all engaged in a reflection of the day to connect their service to skills they gained or sharpened and for which careers those skills could prepare them. A discussion around working outdoors versus indoors emerged which led students to vocalizing their polarizing views. This represented the purpose of this service learning opportunity in that students engaged in tactile activities to which their memories around career discussion were actively tied.
