Children's Home is looking for a Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator!!

Overview

The Volunteer and Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for engaging both internal and external Children’s Home audiences in an attempt to advance our mission of helping the kids and families who need it most.

Internal audience engagement refers to the ongoing support and communication between Development team and program staff, acting as the liaison between the department and the rest of the agency.

External audience engagement refers to community relationship building by way of volunteer management and additional partnerships from local businesses, organizations, and individuals interested in supporting our mission. Such partnerships might look like the donation of time, expertise, or in-kind goods that will facilitate more meaningful experiences for our clients. In addition, external audience engagement requires acting as a spokesperson for the agency, educating the community about CHAIL programs and services. This role will be called on to give community presentations, participate in “tradeshows” or booths, and be an active ambassador for the agency within our community.
