Community Engagement


The Boise Young Professionals Community Engagement Work Team’s role is to provide opportunities for our members to become more involved in the Boise community through volunteer projects and political-related events.  Events and projects vary from year-to-year.  Below is a list of some of this year’s projects:

Mayor Bieter’s YP Roundtable
The round table allows young professionals with direct access to the city’s leader and an opportunity to share ideas. This event is FREE and open to anyone.

b|On Board
This three-week spring program includes panels of prominent Boise leaders who have extensive service on nonprofit, corporate, and public boards and commissions. B|On Board will get you face-to-face with these leaders, provide personal assessments, help you develop skills that are useful in navigating the world of boards and commissions, and leave you ready for a promising future of board service.

Praise from an Idaho nonprofit about BYP volunteers:

“BYP volunteers help with several downtown events, making them even more successful and fun! DBA events build both business and community in our downtown. Events may start early in the morning and go until late in the evening. Regardless of the task, BYP members understand creating a celebration takes work! The DBA is grateful for the time BYP members give and we know we can count on their support in the future.”
– Lynn Hightower, Executive Director, Downtown Boise Association

“The BYP project was a pleasure to coordinate.  The team members were enthusiastic, capable, and hard-working.  It was gratifying to hear team members’ keen interest in the SNRA, the trails, the tools and the methods necessary for stewardship projects in wilderness settings… In short, BYP has set the bar for volunteers with the Sawtooth Society.  Highly productive, injury free, fun-loving, really interesting members.  You have dibs on the camp next June!  Truly inspiring.”
– Greg Travelstead, Volunteer Coordinator, Sawtooth Society
