Directors of Volunteers
A director of volunteers employed by a nonprofit organization is responsible for recruiting, training, and placing volunteers in a variety of positions. Depending on the size of the organization and the scope of its mission, the director of volunteers may oversee anywhere from a few volunteers working a few hours a week on a short-term project to thousands of volunteers committed to a longer time frame. The director of volunteers is fully involved in all aspects of recruiting and training volunteers including raising awareness of the organization's mission, planning events, and fund-raising.
