Governor's Commission on Service and Volunteerism
The Mission of Serve Idaho is "to encourage volunteerism and community service". Serve Idaho promotes collaborative efforts among public, private and nonprofit, state and local agencies to advance community service programs and activities throughout the State.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Volunteer Program offers people of all ages the opportunity to get involved with projects that benefit wildlife and habitat. Volunteer projects include: restoring wildlife habitat, collecting native seeds, surveying sage grouse leks, counting big horn sheep, conducting angler surveys, mountain lake fish stocking, building and maintaining fences, docks, bird nest boxes and interpretive areas, monitoring migrating raptors, songbirds and owls, cleaning up access areas, teaching children how to fish and much, much more!
Spread your wings in some of the state's most spectacular places! Choose to volunteer at a park in an old growth forest, along a trout filled stream, or on the shores of a pristine mountain lake. Or, you may want to help maintain trails, teach boating safety, or work at a visitor center. A person may volunteer as an individual or as a part of a group on short term projects of a day or less, or on a long term project in specialized programs. The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation is the state of Idaho's ambassador for the Take Pride in America campaign. Events are organized annually.
Experience Idaho by helping professional archaeologists and historians preserve its history on public lands! Passport in Time (PIT) is a national volunteer program of the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. PIT volunteers work with professional archaeologists and historians on activities ranging from survey to excavation to laboratory analysis and curation of artifacts. In Idaho, PIT projects involve such diverse activities as locating and photographing tree carvings left by Basque sheepherders, restoring a historic fire lookout tower, locating sections of the Lewis & Clark Trail, or recording ancient rock art in a remote wilderness. Volunteering with PIT is a wonderful way to see Idaho’s national forests and grasslands and to get an in-depth look at history. As a PIT volunteer, you will participate in important historical research and help land managers preserve the places and memories important to our nation’s history for our children and grandchildren.
Volunteers are essential to the City of Boise Parks & Recreation Department's ability to provide the facilities and services Boise citizens have grown to expect from their Parks Department. We offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers to help enhance our programs, parks and facilities. These opportunities range from one time events to ongoing year round or seasonal programs. If the events or programs offered do not fit what you or your organization is looking for, it is possible for us to tailor a project to fit your needs.
Volunteer.Gov/Gov is a partnership aimed at connecting people with public sector volunteer opportunities to help Build America's Communities of Service and provide a single, easy-to-use web portal with information about volunteer opportunities.
