Serve, learn, lead and explore in the historic areas just outside Philadelphia!

Our members are the ambassadors of Habitat Montco, interacting with over 4,000 volunteers, partner families and community stakeholders.

Benefits beyond the AmeriCorps living allowance and education award include a living stipend of $250/month in the form of gift cards for fuel and/or to area grocery stores. In your off hours, explore the beautiful Schuylkill river trail, visit one of the many state parks, or explore the vibrant and historic city of Philadelphia.

Volunteer Services Coordinator

As a Volunteer Services Coordinator, you will be on the front lines of service by helping the volunteers at our affiliate. Your primary responsibility will be to coordinate volunteer management efforts, including but not limited to: assisting with on-site orientations, maintaining and updating the volunteer database, maintaining communications with volunteers though a monthly eNewsletter, recruiting and scheduling volunteers, continually working on volunteer retention and recognition, or other new initiatives at our affiliate. Additionally, you will assist in the coordination of volunteer groups, such as campus chapters and non-construction youth groups. On occasion, you may attend community outreach programs to promote volunteer opportunities, and manage affiliate presence at volunteer fairs. Volunteers are a huge help in the weekly operation of our site, and we need someone like you to be the helping hand and voice to our volunteers.
