W. Sierra Co Volunteers Need Support Too (Virtual)
It takes a whole host of volunteers to put our mission into action. Without people screening new volunteers, monitoring training, and engaging our volunteers, there would be a trained responder to assist when disaster strikes. Here are just two positions that support our mission from a distance.
Screening Team members use a list of questions to seek to understand what brought prospective volunteers to the Red Cross, their areas of interest and what position they would find most meaningful. Screeners use their understanding of the volunteer and match it with the needs of the organization, connecting volunteers with positions for which they are both interested and well-suited.
Hours: one recurring 2-4 hour shift per week
Location: Virtual. Anywhere in California Gold Country Region in Northern California.
