To help out

Help by Volunteering: Triangle Inner City Outings (ICO) needs volunteers to lead outings, manage the budget, handle public relations, run fund raisers, maintain the database of volunteers and handle other administrative tasks. Contact the ICO Chair for details of volunteer opportunities.

To volunteer on a trip, you must fill out the Volunteer Application. The application is a web-based form that will be submitted to the group leaders for review. You will then be contacted about completing a background check.

After a few months of participating on several outings with ICO, volunteers interested in making more of a commitment and becoming a Certified Leader must have a current Sierra Club membership and First Aid certification and complete Outings Leader Training 101.

Help by Donating Funds: To make a tax-deductible donation to the Triangle Chapter of Inner City Outings, make your check payable to "The Sierra Club Foundation" and specify Triangle Inner City Outings in the comment section. Mail your check to:
