Learn more about getting involved with the IRC in Boise by attending one of our open information sessions held each month. Information sessions are located at the IRC in Boise's office. Click here to RSVP to our next information session.
Note: Attendance at an information session is mandatory prior to starting a volunteer position with the IRC in Boise.
After attending an information session, you will be invited to complete a volunteer application and submit online.
Note: please identify your top three volunteer position preferences and schedule availability when prompted, as this will assist us in matching you to a team. Uploading a resume or cover letter with your application is preferred and helpful, but not required.
Once you have submitted your volunteer application, the Community Engagement Specialist will review your skills, availability, and top three volunteer position preferences.
For most volunteer positions, an interview will be required prior to placement into the team, so be on the lookout for an invitation to interview.
Complete a background check; the IRC kindly requests that volunteers contribute $45 towards the cost of this requirement. Once your background check has cleared, the Community Engagement Specialist will contact you to discuss your start date.
Additional things to note
Please be aware that due to increased interest, it may take 2-4 months to process your application and pair you with a volunteer position with IRC. If your volunteering needs are time sensitive, please note this on your application.
