Volunteer Opportunities


The Parental Covenant is the cornerstone to Holy Family Catholic School; it is each family’s promise to fulfill certain obligations to the HFCS by sharing of their time and talent through ministry.  HFCS requires families to fulfill 30 hours of work by sharing their time and talent in any and all of our major Development fundraisers:  SUCCESS Annual Campaign, SCRIP, and the Annual Gala Auction.  In addition, we have service opportunities for room parents, event coordinators, teacher’s helpers, recess duty, lunchroom helpers, Hawktoberfest volunteers, and much more!

All HFCS parents and grandparents who volunteer in our various ministries must complete the mandatory Diocese of Boise’s SAFE Environment training and pass a background check; each parent is also responsible for renewing their SAFE Environment certification online annually.  For more information on SAFE Environment click here.

Auction Chair(s):  We are seeking one or two individuals to help chair our annual auction.  If you are interested in joining the leadership team for one of Holy Family’s most important (and fun) fundraisers, please view the job description and fill out the following application.
