“This is a workplace like none other in my whole career. I felt inspired by the mission and excited to do my job because I knew that we were really helping people every day. In addition to that, the people and the culture was so warm and so caring. I learned a lot about how to be a real team player and what it feels like to work on a real team of supportive people. Such a great experience. Highly recommend!” – Former Ve’ahavta Employee

As part of the Community Mobilization team, and reporting to the Director of Development, you will join a passionate group of change-makers, bringing opportunities to community members that will not only serve our clients who are facing poverty and homelessness, but also bring tremendous meaning and value to their own lives.

As the “first face” of Ve’ahavta for new volunteers, you will guide them through engaging onboarding, training, and orientation so that they are readily prepared for their volunteer experience. With your superb interpersonal skills, you will build relationships with stakeholders to advance their journeys in order to further their involvement and growth. As the key point person for volunteers, you will use your customer service savviness to ensure they are supported along their journey.
Your attention to detail and your system-oriented nature will be valuable as you ensure both volunteer and donor data is captured and tracked for the sake of relationship-building and reporting.
