Catholic Charities of Southern Minnesota has an immediate opening in its Rochester office for a part-time Volunteer Coordinator for its Refugee Resettlement Program.
The volunteer coordinator will recruit, train, and oversee volunteers by building strong relationships throughout the community to support refugees and immigrants. This position will start at 18 hours a week, for the first 2 months, to allow the volunteer coordinator the opportunity to job shadow refugee resettlement staff to better equip them with the knowledge of how the program cares for refugees and immigrants and how volunteers can play a vital part in supporting them. The position will then transition to a 10 hour a week position, with flexible work schedule based on volunteer recruitment events and training for new volunteers.
We are seeking a person with strong communication skills who feels passionate about engaging community members and feels comfortable working with diverse multicultural individuals and families.
