SCI AmeriCorps Volunteer Outreach Coordinator, Boston, MA

The mission of SCI Social Capital Inc. is to strengthen communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. We envision a nation where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities. This increase in ‘social capital’ will result in communities that are safer, healthier and more vital.

The Volunteer Outreach Coordinator (VOC) will develop and implement practices for effective volunteer engagement at their host sites, drawing on SCI’s emphasis on relationship development and nurturing local social networks.

Responsibilities

  • Design a volunteer outreach plan, aiming to increase the capacity of volunteers for the host-site agency.
  • Create a system for screening and matching volunteers to appropriate roles that meet educational needs.
  • Coordinate projects that engage families in school and community life such as resource fairs, family arts and cultural events, academic enrichment projects and family service days. This will also include recruitment of volunteers to provide childcare so that parents can participate in school events.
  • Utilize technology and in-person outreach to recruit residents to volunteer and participate in other civic activities.
  • Each VOC will recruit and coordinate at least 75 volunteers and document at least 200 additional individuals participating in community activities as a result of the member’s service. They will help increase traffic by 10 percent for the SCI community web tools and social media accounts and host partner website and social media accounts (if applicable).
  • Manage contact information of volunteers, website and eblast subscribers, and other contacts.
  • Create marketing materials to promote the community website, volunteer opportunities, and community events.
  • All VOCs will have a strong online presence, and depending on the host site, some VOCs will serve as the primary webmaster for one of the SCI community websites. These members will also be the primary editors for the local civic eBlast. Some of the responsibilities of these roles will be to update content on SCI community portal websites, weekly civic eBlasts, community partner sites and other websites in order to recruit residents to participate in volunteerism and other civic activities.
