MCJC needs a Volunteer Coordinator, and we hope you’ll consider becoming that person! It’s a job that requires just a small time commitment but will have a big impact on the life of MCJC.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our MCJC community, and we have so many people who devote a lot of time and energy to making our community work. From Board Members to those who work on our committees–Building & Maintenance, Communications, Events, Fundraising, Membership and Ritual–we are blessed with hard-working, creative, devoted volunteers.
These committees need help from an energetic Volunteer Coordinator, someone who can build a team of congregants willing to pitch in to help with a dinner or an event or a mailing or to prepare the kitchen for Passover, who can serve as ushers or greeters. We need someone who can create a schedule of kiddush sponsors . . . or pull together people to do whatever is needed on an ad hoc basis.
The person who successfully builds this program will relieve a lot of pressure from the team of volunteers who not only manage committees and the projects that come out of those committees but the many smaller related tasks that could be handled by others who prefer shorter term, more limited commitments.
We can provide to a Volunteer Coordinator an MCJC email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and lists of people to contact to start a volunteer team, individuals you can call on from time to time to help out with projects including set ups and take downs for meals, mailings, ushering and greeting, phone trees and more. We can also offer all the tools of our website, email system and social media connections.
Please contact Dara Turnball (email@example.com) if you’d like to spearhead an effort to organize people who want to help out a little here and there without a huge, long term commitment. Think of all the ways you can make it fun, while doing something critically important for your congregation!
