Volunteer Coordinator

Volunteer Coordinators analyze the mission of a nonprofit to find ways for volunteers to help. They ask the paid staff to describe the work that needs to be done and then write specific job descriptions for volunteers to fill. Next, they search for a willing workforce. They contact local schools, churches, community groups and businesses, making phone calls and presentations. They find a way to fit volunteers' hopes and schedules with the needs of the organization.
