Our nonprofit serves advocates for human rights both here and abroad. We currently run an ESL program for recently arrived Syrian refugees. We are an all-volunteer effort (ages 12-72!). The Volunteer Coordinator reaches out to new volunteers, and stays in touch with our current volunteers (n=80+). A lot of this work can be done remotely from your home. Some "face time" is required at our program site in Wayne. (This site operates only 6 hours each week, Wed 6:30-8:30pm, Sat/Sun 4-6pm).
Our Volunteer Coordinator maintains a volunteer roster, consults with the Executive Team to invite volunteers to attend various events, sends periodic messages about our local advocacy, maintains email and What'sApp lists to let volunteers know when our program isn't running, etc. We also need someone to help respond to new volunteer inquiries. Training is available to help you better understand how GERA (Global Emergency Response and Assistance) works and what's needed in terms of volunteer power.
If you are an organized "people" person with good communication skills and prior experience volunteering, consider helping us with this important task.
