Volunteer and Community Service Opportunities

Students seeking community service and volunteer opportunities may access the following resources to locate a volunteer organization which fits their interests.  Volunteerism allows students to serve their community, contributes to personal growth, and sets them apart from other students on their college application.  Community service is also required for many scholarships!

Annabelle House, a retirement home here in Caldwell, would like to invite students who are interested in interacting with residents to contact them. Activities include:  calling Bingo, helping with crafts, going for walks, reading, etc.  If interested call 455-2324.

The Dreamweaver Musical Theatre is in search of volunteers to help with productions. They produce shows in larger venues (such as Boise State's SPEC and Jewett Auditorium at C of I). They are looking for production crew volunteers. In addition, they are open to helping with Senior Projects. If interested, please contact Executive Director Annie Castiel at (208) 283-2391 or e-mail her at dwmtproductions@gmail.com. You may also visit their website:  https://www.dreamweaverproductions.org/.
