Teen Force portland parks & recreation What Is Teen Force?

Mt. Scott CC

Teen Force embodies the energy and excitement of the awesome trips, classes, drop-in activities, events and volunteer outings we program JUST FOR TEENS! In this brochure is our most current program! ENJOY!

Teen Programming Focus

Teen Force is located in five communities throughout Portland! PROUD PARTNER WITH

INCLUSION SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) provides accommodations to individuals with disabilities/special needs, so that they may receive an equal opportunity to fully participate in programs offered citywide.

Matt Dishman CC

• Activity / Fitness • Environmental Stewardship / Outdoor Experiences • Arts Experiences • Leadership / Employment / Education • Social Interaction / Fun

East Portland CC

Teen Force engages and empowers teens through ongoing registration and drop-in programs, as well as one-time events and special activities specializing in:

Charles Jordan CC

How it Works First choose the activity you’d like to do & the PP&R site at which you’d like to do it. Next, register for the class. When registering, let the person know that you will need accommodations in order to participate in the activity. Once registered, contact Inclusion Services at (503) 8234328. If this is your first accommodation through Inclusion Services, you will need to do a phone intake with a staff member at that number. At the end of the phone intake it will be determined whether an assistant will be needed on the first day of the activity to provide on-site support at the age-appropriate class. Future assistance will be provided based on need. The inclusion staff will work with the instructor on how to support you and your individual needs.

If you have questions about Inclusion Services, please call 503-823-4328 V/TTY. A minimum of 10 business days (Monday-Friday) advance notice is required. The Inclusion Services staff will do their best to accommodate each participant.

Register On-Line at



A general program may be adapted using auxiliary aids & services, but the basic structure of the program remains the same. Accommodations are made as needed & can be flexible & creative, ensuring the participant engages as independently as possible.
