Volunteer meetings are held quarterly at various locations. We'd love for you to join us!  Contact us for the date and location of our next meeting.

Bicycling with Vera CourtAs a volunteer for ICO, you are our most valuable asset. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization: planning and leading outings, managing equipment, helping with fundraising, and most of all, working with the kids to provide safe, fun, and educational trips.

Since ICO volunteers work in direct contact with children, a criminal background check is required. All potential volunteers fill out an online application form which includes information about experience with children and the outdoors, general health questions, references, and agreement for ICO to complete the background check. Please email us at to receive a personal invitation to the background check site. To be covered by the Sierra Club's liability insurance, all volunteers must also be Sierra Club members.For more information about becoming a Sierra Club member visit the Four Lakes Group website at Four Lakes Group Sierra Club Group.

Some volunteers with ICO choose to become Certified Leaders. Certified Leaders are the primary people responsible for each trip. Most outings will have one or two Certified Leaders in charge. To become a Certified Leader, a volunteer must meet all of the requirements above, as well as be certified in CPR and Basic First Aid, and complete a one-day training workshop through ICO. Other training opportunities are available through regional and national Sierra Club Inner City Outings groups. Contact us for more information on upcoming training opportunities.

Of course, volunteers are also necessary to run the organization outside of working with kids. If you have a special talent for organizing, fundraising, writing publicity information, etc, we have several opportunities to you to help. See How You Can Help for further information.

To apply to be an ICO Volunteer, contact us for submission instructions.
