This training is for new or existing volunteers with Boulder Valley Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO). Boulder Valley ICO (formerly Inner City Outings) is an all-volunteer outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides free nature outings and wilderness adventures to children and families in Boulder County and beyond who would not have the opportunities any other way. We provide the food, transportation, and logistics for every outing we offer. We also lend participants all of the specialized equipment and clothing needed for our outings.
This training will cover everything that a volunteer needs to know to run outings with Boulder Valley ICO, from the Sierra Club policies on medications to the process of planning a trip to actually leading the outing itself. The training will also include our curriculum on Child Abuse Recognition & Prevention.
If you are new to Boulder Valley ICO, this is a great opportunity to meet your fellow volunteers. The Outdoor Leadership Training (OLT) 101 & 201 satisfies the outdoor leadership training requirements for Outings Leader Certification. For more on volunteering with Boulder Valley ICO, please visit the volunteer page on our website. If you have questions about volunteering with us, please contact Michael at boulderico.org.
The course runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, 11/6 and 11/7. The course takes place at the Altona Grange in Longmont. Bathrooms, kitchen, and ample parking are available.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
