Eco3.24 Mentor North Volunteer Program Specialist
Mentor North is a non-profit agency serving Duluth, MN, and Superior, WI. Mentor North's mission is to celebrate youth and support their families through one-on-one mentorship and community engagement. We enroll Twin Ports-area youth ages 7-14 and match them with adult volunteers based on complementary interests, personality, values, identities, lived experiences and goals. Our goal is to create a vibrant and inclusive mentorship community. The Volunteer Program Specialist (VPS) will develop meaningful volunteer opportunities beyond the one-on-one mentoring central to our mission. The VPS will explore community aspirations and trends related to volunteerism; analyze Mentor North's current needs, volunteer opportunities and barriers to volunteer involvement; and develop and implement systems for expanded and accessible volunteer engagement, including positions, recruitment, procedures, tracking, recognition and evaluation. Mentor North's VISTA member will enhance organizational capacity by diversifying our volunteer base. This expansion will provide more support to local youth and families facing poverty, while streamlining operations and enhancing sustainability. VISTA member will be part of the Ecolibrium3 AmeriCorps VISTA serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborate on projects, professional development opportunities, and trainings. Additionally, cohort members will jointly complete one community service project of their cooperative design.
