The Global Shapers of Portland is comprised of the most outstanding young Portlanders committed to improving the state of the local community through implementing global ideas. The Portland Hub is founded on three core tenets: Empower, Inspire, and Steward. Empower is to build trust and demonstrate commitment to change with each project. Inspire is to encourage youth to be social entrepreneurs in their own communities. Steward is to remember where we came from and protect what we have. The Shapers of Portland and its partners are developing opportunities for mentorship, human rights, equality, and global project collaboration.
