Position Description

When hope seems lost, we leave a light on. Hays House is here for kids, ages 9 to17, who are runaways, homeless, victims of abuse or neglect, or just need a safe place. We are the Treasure Valley’s only 24/7 shelter for runaway or homeless youth, but we’re also a lot more than that. If you, or someone you know, needs a place to stay, then we are here to help - no judgment, no pressure. 

We're looking for volunteers to assist in many ways at Hays House:
  • Academic tutors
  • Master Gardeners
  • Youth Specialist Aides
  • Experience Instructors
  • and more!

What We Offer Back: Every volunteer contributes to the success of our mission. You can proudly tell your friends and family that every hour you spend serving with us helps provide accessible services to Idaho’s youth who need it most. You’ll also receive an awesome discount in our thrift stores, and serve in a caring and compassionate environment, where we are better together.

Why Unite With Us:  The Idaho Youth Ranch is one of the oldest non-profit agencies in the state of Idaho. Volunteers help move our mission forward. We unite for Idaho’s youth by providing accessible programs and services that nurture hope, healing and resilience.
