We are looking for a detail-oriented and focused Volunteer Coordinator to develop and be responsible for our database of volunteers and volunteer opportunities. The Volunteer Coordinator's responsibilities include recruiting and training new volunteers, keeping a database of volunteer information and skills, matching volunteers to opportunities that suit their skills, keeping volunteers informed, and conveying the organization's purpose to the public.
A successful Volunteer Coordinator should be meticulous about keeping records and passionate about volunteer work. One should uphold the values of our organization while ensuring the comfort of our volunteers in their positions.
We empower aspiring young adults with unique intellectual and developmental barriers in the workforce to find sustainable employment. Through Awareness, Acceptance, Support, Inclusion, Vocation we help our participants develop the functional communication tools and specialized techniques that they and potential employers will use to support the participant's vocational contributions in the workplace.
Expanding Vocational Opportunities by Leveraging Valuable Experiences: Participants work in an "apprenticeship-style" program with various community employers to learn how to work and engage in the workforce. Job coaches facilitate the development of tools and techniques specific to the participant and the place of employment. Over a period of approximately 3 - 7 years, a functional support system is developed across home, transit, and work. The participant's goals and aspirations help define this system. Participants then begin to transition out of the program to become an employee of the local, partnering employer. Alternative plans are developed for those who feel they no longer wish to pursue sustainable employment and desire to transition to suitable adult programs.
