About CWI Street Teams

Last summer the College of Western Idaho (CWI) introduced the Treasure Valley to a fun new outreach program that had one simple goal in mind – promote opportunities available at CWI through outreach efforts at community events. From that idea the CWI Street Teams were born, giving students an opportunity to form a Street Team to raise funds for their club or organization while educating and encouraging college attendance at community events throughout western Idaho. The Street Teams utilized non-traditional methods to raise awareness, engage, and create excitement about student life and opportunities for an education at CWI. The community response was so positive, they are back at it again in 2013. Be sure to look for the CWI Street Teams at a number of events this summer they hit the streets to help spread the word about CWI.
