The Volunteer and Outreach Manager is a key position at WE CAN responsible for the recruitment, training, and appreciation of volunteers as well as identifying, planning, and coordinating outreach activities on behalf of the organization. These two areas are critical to the overall success of WE CAN’s mission to provide unique services offered by local volunteers to help women build pathways to stability and self-sufficiency.
The position requires an individual that is comfortable making presentations to and building relationships with community organizations, faith-based groups and businesses. The Volunteer and Outreach Manager must have strong communication and team building skills to positively engage participants, volunteers, donors and community members. Goals for the Volunteer and Outreach Manager include increasing the volunteer capacity to help meet increasing demand for services and increase access to WE CAN services for previously underserved communities through outreach and collaboration.
WE CAN (Women’s Empowerment through Cape Area Networking) was founded in 2001 to empower Cape Cod women by providing unique services that inspire hope and bring increased stability, self-sufficiency, and opportunity to their lives. WE CAN serves more than 2,400 women each year with confidential, free legal services, employment and business support, financial empowerment, mentoring, and personal development programs. More than 75% of our participants access more than one service at WE CAN.
