AmeriCorps VISTA- Volunteer Engagement Ambassador
Catholic Charities DC
About the organization
The Catholic Charities of DC Volunteer Engagement Office (VEO) seeks to engage volunteers to expand Catholic Charities' mission and reach and cultivate a culture that welcomes volunteers. The VEO does this through assisting staff in identifying volunteer roles that benefit their program and/or clients, recruiting volunteers and matching them to the appropriate role, screening and processing volunteers, and implementing regular volunteer recognition initiatives.
The role of this VISTA is to act as an ambassador between the Volunteer Engagement Office (VEO) and the Catholic Charities’ programs that incorporate volunteers to improve engagement in each program. This includes expanding, tailoring, and facilitating training materials developed in the previous VISTA program year and helping launch new volunteer projects. Training topics include: volunteer engagement, assessing where new volunteer opportunities could support programs, and how to start new volunteer projects. The VISTA will collaborate with VEO leadership to create 2 events for Program Managers to network, share volunteer engagement ideas, troubleshoot solutions to volunteer management challenges, and give feedback on their interactions with the Volunteer Office. Overall, the VISTA will help build up robust and successful volunteer opportunities in many of Catholic Charities 50+ direct service programs.
