Serving Your New Community Site Registration 2017

The Center for Volunteerism and Social Action, is looking for sites within a 30-minute drive of Moscow interested in hosting volunteers during our Serving Your New Community (SYNC) event. This is a great event where roughly 1,500 incoming, first-year students come together to volunteer and spend the day giving back to their new community.

SYNC will occur on Saturday, August 19th and there will be two time slots for that day.  As a community partner, you could receive volunteers from 9am-11:30am and/or from 1pm-3:30pm.  You have the ability to designate which time slot is your preference, or you can accept volunteers at both times!

The following form is for community partners interested in hosting a group of volunteers:

Site requirements:

  • Sites must have 2.5 hours worth of work to keep a minimum of 10 volunteers busy.
  • A representative from the site must be available onsite for the duration of the service and to give a welcome to the volunteers, laying out the importance of the service and engagement. 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • We are unable to send volunteers with supplies this day due to that large number of students serving.  If volunteers need materials (work gloves, trash bags, etc) these will have to be supplied by your organization.
  • Students meet to register at either 8:30am or 12:30pm depending on which group they are in.  It takes a while to register all 1,500 students, get them to the correct buses/vehicles/or on foot in the direction of the service location.  We say they will arrive at either 9am or 1pm, but know this is our best estimate.  It will depend on how far away the site is, what stops the bus will be making before, etc.

We will be reviewing registration submissions as they come in and will contact sites for more information if necessary. We will be in contact as the event approaches with more information.  Always feel free to contact us at volunteer@uidaho.edu or (208) 885-9442 with any questions.
