BOB MARSHALL WILDERNESS FOUNDATION

Volunteer Wilderness Stewardship

Whether you’re an avid backpacker who wants to hit the trail with a new group, a life-long visitor to The Bob who wants to lend to its stewardship, or a first time camper who’s comforted by having a trip leader organize logistics, BMWF’s volunteer vacations are a great way to get outside and give back to Wilderness.

There’s no more intimate way to explore the wilderness of Montana than by helping to build and maintain trails here. You can volunteer for as little as one day or a weekend, or you can spend a week backpacking in the Western Montana wilderness. Families and children ages 12+ with adult supervision are welcome.

For more information, contact Rebecca Powell at 406.387.3808 or
rpowell@bmwf.org

HOCKADAY MUSEUM OR ART

Arts in the Park Volunteer

Arts in the Park is an annual arts and music festival hosted in downtown Kalispell, providing the community with an opportunity to enjoy 80+ artist vendors, local food trucks, live music, and family and children’s activities at a low cost. AIP is a premier fundraiser for the Hockaday Museum of Art and admission costs help to fund the Hockaday’s educational programs, classes, and exhibitions. Volunteers for this event can sign up for a variety of different tasks, ranging from working the beer & wine garden to greeting guests at entrance booths to helping set up the event layout in Depot Park. Volunteers should be capable of being outside in heat for a few hours, though there are shady portions of the park. Volunteers should be welcoming and friendly to the public. Skills like cash-handling, customer service, and providing directions are especially helpful, but all you really need to volunteer at AIP is a desire to support your community and the arts!
This year’s Arts in the Park takes place Friday-Sunday July 12-14 with setup occurring Thursday, July 11. Volunteer shifts are available beginning at 9:45am through 6:00pm during festival hours, and 8am-6pm during setup day. For Frequently Asked Questions about volunteering, see the Hockaday Museum of Art website, linked below. Registering to volunteer can be done through our Sign Up Genius, also included on the website.

Writing Coaches of Montana

Writing Coach

Coaches meet one-on-one with students throughout the school year to work with them on writing assignments. This could range from brainstorming ideas, organizing an outline, or fine-tuning rough drafts. Writing coaches are needed in Whitefish, Kalispell, and Evergreen middle and high schools.

APPROACH
Writing Coaches of Montana’s coaching approach is based on literacy and teaching best practices. Our coaching employs a student-centered, praise-question-suggest model. This allows students to maintain ownership of their intellectual work, grow an understanding of the writing and revision process, and build community with local volunteers.

REQUIREMENTS
Training:
Coaches must attend a training prior to coaching students, and are trained by literacy and teacher education experts from University of Montana during a two-hour, online and interactive meeting. Online trainings are offered periodically throughout the school year.

Name and/or Background Checks:
For in-person coaching, we will likely begin requiring that volunteers must pass a name-based check.

For any online coaching teachers may request, background checks are required for coaches who sign up for online sessions as these meetings involve minors who are unsupervised during their coaching sessions.

Get involved. Join our mailing list!

For more information, contact Jeanne Wdowin, Flathead County Coordinator at 480-518-2296 or jeanne@writingcoachesofmontana.org
