Front Desk Reception is the first stop for all visitors to the YWCA, and this volunteer will embody our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
The Front Desk Reception volunteer will greet:
Families dropping off and picking up children in our Early Learning Center, and assure them of our professionalism and care of their children.
Clients who need to feel seen, heard, respected, and safe as we direct them to our services
Donors giving generously to lift up women and families in our community
Community groups who meet in our building’s conference rooms
Government and community leaders who partner with YWCA working towards a better future for the Topeka area
This volunteer will gain or practice great administration skills taking phone calls or in person visits and directing each to the correct provider of services for them. A calm, confident, and compassionate presence is best for this position. This volunteer enables our advocates, childcare, and administrative staff to help more people in need by maintaining orderly workflow through phone and in-person contacts and setting a tone of compassionate professionalism within our clients’ first contact with the YWCA.
Masks are required for entry into building and are worn at all time. Social distancing and heightened sanitation are in place to keep our volunteers, staff, and community safe.
Shifts are a minimum of 2 hours within the hours of 9-5:30, M-F. Background check and training required.
YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women's organization in the world.
Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 106 countries, including 2.6 million members and participants in 300 local associations in the United States.
More important than the numbers, is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for women's rights and civil rights in Congress.
Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness. They come for a variety of reasons. But they come. And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives.
