At Heartland Hospice, Volunteers work side-by-side with the account staff on a wide range of projects in a variety of different areas, including Final Wishes Fulfillment, Hospice Care, Veteran Centric Care, Veteran Benefits, and Non-Profits. The projects are selected to ensure that the Volunteer is able to experience and appreciate the different facets of public relations work. As part of a structured program, they will learn and undertake the basic responsibilities of a junior-level staffer, such as building media lists, media monitoring, performing research, writing media materials, and developing communication materials. They will also have the opportunity to work on special projects, event coordination and media pitches. Volunteers are encouraged to follow through on as many stages of a project as is feasible so that they can feel a sense of ownership and achievement over their work. In keeping with the Heartland Hospice philosophy of enabling people to develop to their full potential, Volunteers who show ability and aptitude are also encouraged, under guided supervision, to take on challenges that stretch and stimulate them.
