They will be needed throughout the day to assist with many tasks, including delivering pies to various offices around the capitol complex, greeting legislators, and assisting with clean-up.

Thank you for lending your teen!

Idaho legislators really enjoy meeting these special teens! 

Young adult volunteers will need to arrive at the capitol building by 8:00 AM to help with set-up and to receive pie donations curbside at the capitol steps. They will be needed throughout the day to assist with many tasks, including delivering pies to various offices around the capitol complex, greeting legislators, and assisting with clean-up after 2:00 PM. 

Important Details

Parking

Parking: It can be challenging to find parking near the capitol. The parking meters are closely monitored, and hefty fines are accrued when they expire.

We recommend parking in the public parking garage on 8th and Bannock. The entrance is on Bannock across from the Banner Bank.

Inside the Capitol

Our capitol building is historic. The elevators are small and sluggish! We suggest you use the beautiful marble stairs!

The rotunda of our capitol is surrounded by a low wall with wide openings, overlooking a 4-story open center. Young children must be very well attended for safety’s sake!

The Legislature is in session during Legislative Pie Day. Be aware that sound carries easily because of the open rotunda.

 

Meeting Legislators

Our capitol is a formal office environment. Please take advantage of this opportunity to practice etiquette skills like these:

  • Walk, don’t run.
  • Shake hands firmly, though without inflicting pain.
  • Make eye contact when speaking with someone.
  • Speak clearly using adequate volume.
  • Put on your Sunday best.
  • Smile! You will be meeting many potential friends.
