Leadership volunteer assignments require experience, an on-going commitment to the Foodbank’s mission.
Regular shift assignments, some training and annual refresher training, and a monthly Team Leader meeting are required. These volunteers are peer leaders for every task at the Foodbank; their involvement and on-going commitment make eliminating hunger a possibility in our community. If you are interested in becoming a Team Leader, start with Basic or Regular Assignment volunteering and contact Volunteer Manager Stephanie Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest.
Volunteer Team Leader
These volunteers have logged hundreds of hours as basic and regular volunteers, completed training in task and group management, and commit to regular monthly meetings and leadership shifts. Team Leaders supervise evening and weekend warehouse work, special events and some warehouse functions.
Advisory Council and Board of Directors
The volunteer advisory council meets regularly to examine trends in volunteerism and foodbanking and how each impacts our volunteer department. This volunteer/staff collaborative group sets procedure and provides oversight for the volunteer functions at the Foodbank. Additionally, each program area at the Foodbank has its own advisory council partnership. The Board of Directors is also a leadership volunteer opportunity.
