Your talent and time make the difference in the work we do at HREI. We have many volunteer opportunities, and we would enjoy sharing these with you. We look forward to working with you to help promote our mission of teaching human rights, diversity, equality, and respect for all. For more information, please stop by our location (414 W. Fort Grounds, Coeur d’Alene), call 208-292-2359, or email JLaster@hrei.org.
We have numerous volunteer opportunities, and this is just a basic list of our current needs. If you have other ideas or areas of interest, please share with us!
Currently we are looking for a volunteer that can help with basic maintenance around our facility. If this is something that you would like to help out with, please call 208-292-2359, or email JLaster@hrei.org.
Greet all visitors when they arrive at HREI offer a tour of the facility and its exhibits. Share your enthusiasm for HREI, and tell the visitors about all of our upcoming events. Saturday volunteers are also needed. In low-volume times, there are many things to do, including writing thank-you letters, human-rights scrapbooking, and general office duties.
These volunteers are critical in our efforts to raise awareness in our community. We need individuals to partner with an elementary school, a high school human rights club, or other community organization. As a community liaison, you will be the bridge between HREI and your adopted group. You will help us bring HREI resources to the club or organization, as well as bring us information on how HREI can fill community needs.
Assist us at HREI cultural events and quarterly socials by volunteering to greet, help with facility set-up and/or take-down. These volunteers will also help us develop and implement regular programming that educates children and their families about the issues of diversity, equality and respect. Are you interested in helping us organize regular family nights? Or helping us staff a HREI booth at a community event? If so, this volunteer niche is for you!
Educating and transforming our community takes funds. We are always looking for help with grant writing. Volunteers can also play an important role in helping to implement fundraising events. Volunteer at our “Mad Hatter Tea Party” in May or for our annual HREI Benefit Golf Tournament at Circling Raven Golf Course in July. We need volunteers to sell tickets ahead of time, and to volunteer on the day of the event. Opportunities to assist in planning and volunteering for other fundraisers will also enable these volunteers to make a big difference.
We would like to invite the North Idaho community to the 4th Annual Diversity Symposium at North Idaho College on Tuesday, April 16
