The host sites where members serve include the First Way Pregnancy Center, The Friends of Black Rock High Rock, Nevada Outdoor School, French Ford Middle School, Great Basin College,Humboldt County School District, Lander County School District, Humboldt Development Authority, and Western Nevada Development District.
