Weekend ASB provides students an opportunity to serve in the region with a team of Vandals. This year, Weekend ASB is completely free of charge!
Three Fall Weekend ASB teams are serving in October and November. See each description below.
Oct. 5-7 Panhandle Animal Shelter, Sandpoint, ID
Apps Due: 9/23 at 11:59pm
Pre Meetings: 9/27, 10/4
Students will have the chance to work with Panhandle Animal Shelter, a nonprofit, no-kill shelter with an impressive history in the Sandpoint community. The shelter’s outreach programs provide humane education, spay/neuter cost assistance and free pet identification and registration. This experience is sure to provide students with insights into animal rights and community development.
Oct. 19-21 Wolf Education Research Center, Winchester, ID
Apps Due: 10/7 at 11:59pm
Pre Meetings: 10/11, 10/18
Alongside biologists and canine experts, students will work to maintain a wolf sanctuary and research center local to the Palouse for nearly 23 years. Last year, University of Idaho students helped the WERC relocate while learning the history of the Owyhee Pack, and the importance of animal research. This year, UI is returning to help the WERC settle in their new location and to learn more about the intricacies of ecologic sustainability and environmental justice.
Nov. 2-4 Community Cancer Services, Sandpoint, ID
Apps Due: 10/14 at 11:59pm
Pre Meetings: 10/25, 11/1
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, “A Night to Remember,” 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. More information about opportunities to participate in the spring Weekend ASB will be released in March 2019.
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.
