Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: American Red Cross, Gold Country Region

Volunteers are heroes!
Call all heroes!

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 wouldn’t be a trained responder to assist when disaster strikes. Volunteering a few hours a week in one of these roles, is sure to help you develop various administrative skills. Some roles open to youth volunteers.


Volunteer Screeners
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.

Front Desk and Administrative Support
Assist in the administrative activities of American Red Cross Operations department with various tasks like processing vendor payments, managing document retention, coordinating work orders for facilities or fleet vehicles, data entry, and more.

Location: Two office locations to choose from, Sacramento and Yuba City. More locations to come.
