Volunteer Information

The ICO program is made possible by its volunteers who give generously of their time and skills, and by the donations of money and equipment from its supporters.

Our meetings play an important role in the success of our program.  It is your opportunity to network and bond with your team members and other volunteers. It is also the best way to stay in touch with what is happening, how it is happening, and to learn about other ways to get involved.  Meetings are scheduled at least monthly using our Meetup group. Be sure to also follow us on Facebook to lear more about the organization.  

To Join our Volunteer Corp
We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us. There are many different ways to contribute and be involved:
  • If you would like to eventually lead trips, you will need to complete your CPR, First Aid, and Sierra Club ICO Leadership Training
  • Attend the meetings and volunteer socials
  • We always need help with organizing and taking kids out on trips, Fundraising activities, coordinating volunteers, and administrative tasks
We accept volunteers continually throughout the year. You will receive a thorough orientation and leadership training is offered as needed. You will work with wonderful kids who will teach you a few things about their life while you teach them a few things about yours. You will get to share your knowledge and love for the outdoors with kids and adults who have never known waterfalls or butterflies or hiking trails or a campfire.

So, to begin, there are several steps:

1. Print and sign the Volunteer Agreement
