General Volunteer Opportunities
General volunteers work with the Program Director to help with various tasks. During the season, tasks may include delivering forms or sorting snacks. During the off season, volunteers help prepare for the upcoming season.
Weekly Season Volunteer – ongoing – At least two hours a week. This position works with Melissa on a weekly basis during the season. Each week a different task is presented, from sorting t-shirts to organizing 5K registrations. Lots of various tasks.
Snack Sorter: Help with sorting snacks before the season begins and before the second meeting during the season. Time commitment is approximately 1-2 hours and is done in Boise.
Supply Box Volunteer: Volunteers help Melissa and the Girls on the Run Board members organize the supply boxes for each site. Time commitment is approximately 3-4 hours. This will be scheduled for late January or early February.
Inventory Medical Kits: Volunteers inventory medical kits and replenish needed items. Time commitment is approximately 2-4 hours and can be done on your own time.
Site Visit Volunteers – Veteran Coaches: Once the season begins we will need coaches who have been with Girls on the Run for 2+ seasons who can assist with site visits the third or fifth week of the season. If you are interested, please let Melissa know. This is a great opportunity for veteran coaches that are unable to commit to the whole season, but still would like to volunteer in some capacity.
Welcome Packets: Volunteers collate and put together the Welcome Packets for each participant for the upcoming season (approximately 300). Time commitment is approximately 2-4 hours and can be done on your own time.
Inventory Curriculum Binders: Volunteers inventory curriculum binders and replenish needed pages. Time commitment is approximately 2-4 hours and can be done on your own time.
