Volunteer Connection’s Mission

The idea of academic service and Volunteer Connection was first conceived by BYU-Idaho President Kim B. Clark in 2010. Since that time, the goal has been to provide as many meaningful volunteer opportunities for BYU-Idaho students as possible. Thousands of students have volunteered to help their peers. Join the effort and be part of the legacy.
