The Volunteer Recruiter (VR) will be a member of the External Engagement team responsible for the recruitment of volunteer Citizen Teachers in Citizen Schools’ Expanded Learning Time (ELT) program as well as the recruitment of volunteers in Citizen Schools’ new in-school model, Catalyst. The VR will manage a portfolio of community-based organization partners that provide volunteers and will work closely with the Director of Corporate Engagement (DCE) to leverage Citizen Schools’ corporate partners to source volunteers. Specifically, the VR will plan and execute volunteer recruitment, steward existing relationships, and research and cultivate new relationships.
Reporting to the Director of Corporate Engagement (DCE), the VR will work as part of a larger External Engagement team that leads both fundraising as well as civic engagement for the organization. The VR will also work closely with program staff in Citizen Schools’ Expanded Learning Time sites and from the national Catalyst team to understand what competencies and skills are most needed in volunteers to partner successfully with teachers and students. The role is an exciting opportunity for a very detail-oriented and highly organized, relationship builder with a sales mindset to learn the full breadth of volunteer and partnership management and operations.

ABOUT CITIZEN SCHOOLS
All children deserve the opportunity to discover and achieve their dreams. Citizen Schools makes this possible for thousands of high-need middle school students nationwide through partnerships with public districts that extend the school day and introduce volunteer and paid adults to increase hands-on learning opportunities. Extended Learning Time or ELT is an evidence-based model, that consistently accelerates the rate of student learning, reduces absenteeism, leads to more students reaching grade-level proficiency, and prepares students for college and beyond.
