Lay It Out Events proudly supports local nonprofits & community organizations

Connect Central Oregon’s mission is to grow our community and its future leaders by harnessing the power of volunteerism, mentoring, innovation, and partnerships. We envision a Central Oregon where everyone has access to the support and opportunities they need to thrive.
What We Do:
  • Volunteerism: Promoting service opportunities for individuals, groups, and organizations throughout Central Oregon.
  • Mentorship: Offering structured and unstructured mentoring programs, including partnerships with local colleges for internships and professional development.
  • Innovation: Engaging in innovative projects that address community needs and support future leaders.
Since 2004, we have led hundreds of projects and programs, delivering thousands of volunteer service hours. In 2022, we merged our efforts under Connect Central Oregon to better serve the community as one unified organization.
