Opportunity Details

Administration, Social Media, Youth Engagement - Red Cross

It takes a whole host of volunteers to put the Red Cross mission into action. Without people screening new volunteers, monitoring training, and engaging our volunteers, there wouldn’t be a trained responder to assist when disaster strikes. Volunteering a few hours a week in one of these roles, is sure to help you develop various administrative, social media, youth skills and more!

 

ADMINISTRATION


Volunteer Screeners Screening Team members use a list of questions to seek to understand what brought prospective volunteers to the Red Cross, their areas of interest and what position they would find most meaningful. Screeners use their understanding of the volunteer and match it with the needs of the organization, connecting volunteers with positions for which they are both interested and well-suited.

Hours: one recurring 2-4 hour shift per week | Location: Virtual. Anywhere in California Gold Country Region in Northern California.
