Volunteer Coordinators handle all volunteer logistics, support volunteer fundraising efforts that directly support the AmeriCorps project, speak with energy to large groups of volunteers about the work we are doing before and after their volunteer build, communicate with multiple departments to ensure volunteers have a quality experience, and spread the word about local outreach events.
