– Remote, Minnesota
Employment Type Seasonal Temporary

The purpose of the Volunteer Coordinator is to manage, communicate, and engage all Program volunteers. This begins with responding to inquiries, scheduling, preparing, greeting, engaging and recruiting volunteers. This position requires an ability to perform in high stress environments, flexibility when it comes to travel and living situation, a positive attitude, and high self-motivation.
