We are hiring a temporary, part-time Volunteer Coordinator. The VC will formalize our volunteer program and recruit volunteers for a wide variety of tasks and projects. The position takes place in Marfa. Hours and work setting are flexible. VC should have at least two years experience in organizing and working with volunteers; significant community connections in Marfa, preferably Spanish speaking with familial ties to the Blackwell School; enjoy calling, emailing, and instigating direct contact with potential volunteers; possess professional good cheer and sensitivity to our story. To learn more and apply, visit theblackwellschool.org/opportunities.
OK, here is the straight dope: We are a wonderful group of largely introverted people over at the Blackwell School. We love volunteers, we have tons of great and varied projects, and the work is so important in today's world. Yet we (esp. me, Gretel) are just not great in the social recruiting and follow-up with volunteers. Can you help? We can pay well on a contract basis.
