Interested in making connections in Lima? Elder Victim Ministry is currently looking for a volunteer or student intern (non-paid) to act as its Adult Crime Education (ACE) Workshop Coordinator. Come join the EVM Volunteer Team! Thursdays are usually our volunteer days. Laughter is as present here as the care we give for those we’re serving.
ACE Workshops take place once a month at three Lima locations. It’s designed to raise awareness about elder abuse in Allen County and to educate the public to identify and stand up to crime in the community. Past topics have included: Scams, Personal Safety Planning, Trauma and Healing, Community Resources, Maintaining a Buddy System, Victim Rights, Medication Safety, and Exploitation by Friends and Family. ACE presenters include: Lima Police Department Crime Prevention and Community Policing, Elder Victim Ministry, Crime Victim Services Victim-Offender Dialogue, UMADOP, Area Agency on Aging and Allen County Council On Aging.
Job responsibilities include contacting professionals to request presentations, coordinating dates with presenters and senior living facility managers, creating and distributing event flyers, and notifying EVM management of presentation logistics. Additional responsibilities can include: obtaining incentive items and hosting the presentations. Computer skills are a must, including use of email, online calendars and spreadsheets.
After applying, we’ll contact you to set up an interview. A state and federal background check is required. Volunteers are trained and your mileage is paid.
