Volunteer Home Page PhotoThank you for your interest in volunteering with Boise Parks & Recreation.  We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for you or your organization to be involved with.  These opportunities range from one time volunteer events to ongoing year round or seasonal programs.

If you or your organization are interested in volunteering with us, you will be required to review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook and sign a volunteer waiver prior to placement.  Some volunteer positions are sensitive in nature and/or involve working closely with at risk populations, and may require you to undergo a criminal history background check.

There are a large variety of opportunities across the Department, such as coaching hockey at Idaho IceWorld; helping youth with disabilities participate in sporting and outdoor activities in our Adaptive Recreation Program; educating zoo visitors about the animals and their habitat or aiding with special events at Zoo Boise; leading and preparing lessons for school and community groups at the Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center; and helping with park maintenance needs in events such as Releaf Boise, Tending Our Foothills, and the Boise Riversweep.

Regardless of your interest, we are sure to have an opportunity for you.
