Volunteering As A Pathway to Employment

Volunteers have higher odds of finding employment in today's job market.  A recent study by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) found that volunteers have a 27 percent higher likelihood of finding a job after being out of work than non-volunteers.  To find out further information on the link between volunteering and employment click here.






In the year 2000, Idaho was the first state to create the America's Promise "Youth" license plate to honor young people and to fulfill a commitment to Retired General Colin Powell.

Proceeds from the sale of each license plate stay in the county where the plates are sold.  100% of the money generated is used to fund programs that help at-risk youth, and programs that offer activities during non-school hours.  The goal is to help reduce drug and alcohol abuse, gang activity, and school drop outs.
