Next Volunteer Orientation Set for March 15
Updated: Mar 12
Tuesday March 15 @ 5:30 PM
This special Volunteer Orientation is designed for Village members who also want to volunteer. There are many ways to become involved as a Village volunteer. We are always seeking new committee members, member check-in callers, office helpers, and more. If you are a Village member who is interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer, please e-mail the office to sign up for this session.
We need volunteers to help with many tasks, including:
Welcome New Members – Call and email new members, deliver their “new member materials”, welcome them to the Village, discuss upcoming events, and join them at an upcoming event to make sure that they are comfortable and acclimated. Engage Members – Work with the Village staff to assess member engagement, review member surveys, monitor member retention, make program suggestions to the Program Advisory Committee, and conduct periodic outreach to disengaged members. Serve on the Volunteer Committee – Attend a monthly meeting aimed at ensuring that we have an active, engaged volunteer corps. Help write articles for the quarterly volunteer newsletter, plan volunteer appreciation events, develop volunteer awards programs, etc. Provide Outreach – Attend community events, such as the farmers’ markets and community association meetings, to discuss the Village opportunities for members and volunteers. Coordinate with Other Community Organizations – Identify and coordinate with community partners (e.g., faith communities, community associations, businesses/Main Street programs, schools, and other community-based organizations) to provide them with information on the Village, our programs, and volunteer opportunities. Research Grants – Conduct research on grant opportunities, including local family foundations, appropriate for the Village. Plan Events – Help plan and staff events of all types, including such things as community concerts, nature walks, TED talk discussion groups, and fundraisers.
So, if you have the time and inclination, we likely have a job for you to help build our Village!
