When people in need of food assistance come to Skyline, they get checked in at a desk in the lobby. This is a chance to make everyone feel welcome as well as make sure that they are eligible to receive groceries. A volunteer in this position would be responsible for looking the patron up in the system, confirming the accuracy of the information, and signing them into the database.
The position requires discretion, critical thinking, and basic computer skills. It is also an opportunity to connect with people and help ensure their experience is one of dignity and encouragement.
Because it takes at least a week to get used to using the database and learning policy, this is considered a long-term position. Skyline staff can work with volunteers' availability!
