Day to Day

A great day at work consists of meeting new people and communicating via phone and/or email. My day consists of answering phone calls and emails, responding to volunteer opportunity requests submitted for my organization and facilitating the recruitment and selection process, revising new submissions for volunteer opportunities and publishing the opportunities on a local database, and assisting corporations with connecting with volunteer opportunities in the community.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Interpersonal skills are key in this role as well as experience performing administrative tasks and staying organized.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Volunteer! Volunteering provides you with the perfect chance to test a career and decide what field is right for you. It also helps you to make connections that may help you obtain a job later on, and gives you the opportunity to gain experience and practice skills that you may otherwise not learn in school. The best benefit of volunteering is engaging in a meaningful opportunity that assists others, and assists you too in learning more about yourself and your community.
