Volunteer opportunities

Thank you for your interest in welcoming refugees to your community. By volunteering with the IRC in Boise, ID, you use your skills to help people who have fled violence and persecution to rebuild their lives in America. See below for the latest volunteer opportunities and how to apply.

Volunteer process

  1. Learn more about getting involved with the IRC in Boise by attending one of our mandatory information sessions held the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. Information sessions are located at the IRC in Boise's office. Click here to RSVP to our next information session.

  2. After attending an information session, you will be invited to complete a volunteer application and submit online.

  3. Complete a background check; the IRC kindly requests that volunteers contribute $45 towards the cost of this requirement.

  4. Once your background check has cleared, the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to discuss your placement. For certain volunteer positions, an interview may be required prior to placement into the team.

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.
