Giving Back to Boise

At Aveda Institute Boise, we think that giving back to our local community is the best way to help our community thrive. Doing volunteer and charity work always makes us feel better, so we like to encourage our students and neighbors to go out and do as much as they can for everyone around them. We also offer our students the opportunity to give back during school with volunteer options and participation in fun activities like cut-a-thons.

Here are a few things you can do in Boise, Idaho to help your local community.
