Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator More Than Words
More Than Words (MTW) supports youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Youth work two paid jobs at MTW: in our $2M bookselling business learning critical skills and a “YOU Job” where they advance personal goals in education, work, and life. MTW is in the midst of a game-changing expansion in the South End of Boston, growing to take over the first floor of our building with a new bookstore, marketplace, and community event space, and serve 60% more youth. In this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA member will help MTW prepare for this expansion by engaging a vibrant community of volunteers and neighbors to rally around our youth and this expansion project. Working with the Development & Events Manager out of our South End site, the Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator will revise volunteer programming, recruit and onboard new volunteers, manage the growth of the volunteer schedule, and support our youth to thrive while leading groups of volunteers. The member will have the opportunity to develop new systems, gain program management skills, and see our young people grow first hand in a dynamic, fast-based, team-oriented environment. The member should be prepared to serve a Tuesday-Saturday schedule to engage with volunteers on weekends. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
