Violence against women and girls, men and boys is a problem of pandemic proportions. Victims are affected physically, psychologically and spiritually. We all have a connection to the issue because those mostly affected are our mothers, sisters, daughters and nieces. Furthermore, violence erodes communities and we have a responsibility to support an environment which operates on respect, equality and compassion. There is a role for everyone to play in ending violence in our communities.
We typically seek interns who are able to commit to volunteering with the Idaho Coalition in a part-time capacity for 4 months. For other volunteer opportunities we seek volunteers who are able to commit 2-4 hours a week. Volunteering with the Idaho Coalition is an opportunity to learn more about domestic violence, dating abuse, stalking and sexual assault and the first steps to participating in violence prevention before it happens.
Placement opportunities are based on particular assignments as they come up. We target applicants who are able to commit to the minimum time frame, are flexible, are open to all types of projects and those seeking to make a significant contribution in violence prevention efforts. Most volunteer projects are centered on providing support to the social change programs of the Idaho Coalition.

We will continue to post information about additional volunteer or internship opportunities as they arise, so please check back soon. Please also note that our staff is small and due to the high numbers of applicants for these internship positions, we regret that we can only respond to candidates that we would like to interview. We greatly appreciate your support and interest, and hope to be able to expand our volunteer opportunities in the future. Click here to apply
If you are only available once and/or for fewer hours there are many other ways to become involved. We plan numerous events throughout the year on prevention, intervention and response to Domestic Violence. Some of those activities such as, Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), statewide convenings, National Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month (February), and the Center for Healthy Teen Relationships program require many volunteers. We will continue to post information about these additional volunteer opportunities as they arise.
