Gov. Brad Little appointed four new commissioners to Serve Idaho, the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism. The new commissioners include Kevin Bailey and Amy Little, both of Boise, Alina Rahim of Pocatello and Jordan Woods of Meridian.
The four join 14 governor-appointed commissioners whose mission is “To inspire and recognize volunteers and empower communities through service and AmeriCorps to solve Idaho’s unmet needs.”
“Our commissioners bring a wealth of knowledge and energy to the commission as well as first-hand knowledge of the benefits and rewards of service in our communities,” said Renee Bade, program manager for Serve Idaho.
Bailey was appointed as an ex-officio commissioner and is the President and CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center where he has overseen the organization since July 2021. He previously served as the CEO of the United Way of southeastern Idaho and has more than 10 years of nonprofit experience, including working in international development, higher education and community-based nonprofit work. Prior to moving to Idaho, Bailey served as the director of Federal Upward Bound projects for Nebraska Methodist College, the family strengthening coordinator for Catholic Charities of Omaha and worked as a teacher in both Virginia and Chile.
