Volunteer coordinators are put in place to ensure that the interests of volunteers are served and that the volunteer organization remains well staffed. They may coordinate and schedule volunteers on an ongoing basis or organize single events. Volunteer coordinators must also keep existing volunteers informed via newsletters or other communications.
Volunteer coordinators are to actively recruit volunteers for the upcoming events. They may reach out to established volunteers or seek new help using various marketing tools, including volunteer databases, e-mail letters, and outreach events. They must be detail-oriented and organized, since they may work on many projects at once. They must also be outgoing and communicate effectively with a variety of people.
Volunteer Coordinator Duties
Coordinators must match interested volunteers with an opportunity that suits their skill set and serves the organization. Volunteer coordinators must make an effort to ensure that individual volunteers feel comfortable with their placements and fully understand their responsibilities.
In some cases, volunteer coordinators may work with large groups rather than individuals. In these instances, the coordinator serves as a point of contact for all parties. Whether they are working with a single volunteer or a large group, volunteer coordinators must ensure that all workers receive proper training.
Volunteer coordinators must also maintain communication with existing volunteers. Since volunteers are usually unpaid and their services greatly contribute to an organization's functions, it is important that they feel appreciated and stay informed. Volunteer coordinators may hold events to thank volunteers or send individual correspondences. Informative e-mails and newsletters are often sent to volunteers to keep them abreast of happenings within the organization and informed of additional opportunities to participate.
