Since 2000 Montana Women Vote has helped to organize and include historically underrepresented communities, specifically women, all over the state of Montana in civic engagement work. This non profit has worked for nearly twenty years to mobilize women and rally for progressive policies like health care access, reproductive rights, economic justice, and violence prevention. Vandals will spend the weekend volunteering with Montana Women Vote helping to recruit women to be involved in census participation, as well as voter registration. Students will also learn more about the political process and how advocacy leads to real change.

Since 2002, Community Cancer Services has worked to improve access to medical resources, spread information about public health in rural communities, and provided emotional support for individuals who have been affected by cancer. University of Idaho students will volunteer at one of CSS’s largest annual fundraisers, “The Mad Hatter Tea Party,” and hear the stories of survivors whose lives have been forever shaped by the staff at CCS.
We are very excited for our second year of weekend ASB programs at the University of Idaho. Weekend ASBs take place during the fall and spring semesters.
The Weekend ASB Program is available because of the invaluable support we received in our Crowdfunding Campaign. Check out the video to learn more about what inspired Weekend ASB.
