We rely on volunteer docents for our Saturday Farmhouse Tours and our Third Grade Education Program. Trainings will begin soon! See below for details around these 2 volunteer opportunities:
The Farmhouse is open to the public each Saturday May 1 - September 25, 2021 (except holidays) from 12:30 - 4:30pm. You can volunteer as many or as few of these Saturdays that will fit into your schedule.
This opportunity entails opening the house and make it ready for the public by pulling up the shades and hang out! It's up to you how engaged you want to be with the people coming through the house as some people like to wander through on their own and others may ask some questions. We prepare you by giving you a handbook with the answers to likely questions that you may receive.
If you're interested please contact us at: email@example.com or call at 208-229-4006.
Third Grade Education Program
Interested in learning more about the Schick Ostolasa Farmstead and sharing what you learn with young student historians from the Boise schools?
The Dry Creek Historical Society has the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! The DCHS is looking for volunteers to help with their 3rd grade field trip program this fall at the Farmstead. You will receive a one hour walk through and training. A two hour commitment (9:45 A.M.-11:45A.M.) day of the field trip is required.
If you're interested please contact Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Dry Creek Historical Society and the Schick-Ostolasa Farmstead are supported solely by volunteers, donations and grants. We depend on our volunteers to help keep the Farmstead in top shape and to assist at our events.
Whether you have a lot of time on your hands or only a little bit here and there we have many opportunities for everyone! Some areas where we typically have a need for volunteers:
Upkeep and Maintenance of the Farmstead (weeding, raking leaves, watering, etc.)
For any High School and College students who are looking for volunteer hours we are happy to assist in providing the necessary hours to complete your requirements.
If you have other ideas where you feel you would fit that is not listed above we would love to hear from you! We put a call out via social media when we are in need of volunteers. Please do contact us if you are interested:
