2020-2021 Volunteer Marketing and Training Coordinator VISTA
With over 8,000 volunteer slots to fill per year and 17 volunteer programs providing vital services at Hesed House, it is essential to empower our recurring service group coordinators to recruit from their own networks for their service dates. This position helps to maintain those recurring group relationships by filling an existing need of creating a marketing toolkit to help coordinators recruit volunteers and raise food from within their groups. The position will also recruit new and potentially recurring volunteer groups, and survey volunteer groups for further needs. Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again. Every year our homeless shelters serve about 1,000 people with nowhere else to turn. Community relationships and funding allow us to continue our mission of providing immediate food and shelter for those in need and give us the ability to return them to independent living. In addition, over 300 people per year are served through Hesed’s Homeless Prevention Program. Also, 61 households and 128 people are currently being served by Hesed’s supportive housing programs. This position is a part of the Housing Action VISTA Network, which is an AmeriCorps VISTA program managed by Housing Action Illinois since 2010. As such, this position will receive customized training, support, guidance, and networking opportunities, in addition to the traditional opportunities for AmeriCorps VISTA positions. Learn more about the program at Housing Action’s website. This position can start in June, July, or August. Speak to your interview for more details.
