Outreach Liaison Volunteer
Objective:Atlanta Habitat conducts outreach events in the community to identify potential homebuyers. These events include, but are not limited to, (i) hosting an information booth at fairs and festivals sponsored by other nonprofit organizations, (ii) presentations at schools, employers, and other organizations, and (iii) distribution of flyers in the community. If these individuals express interest in the Atlanta Habitat program, they will be invited to an Information Session to learn more about the program and its requirements and, if the Atlanta Habitat program may be a good option for the household, they will be invited to complete an application for homeownership.
Outline of Volunteer Responsibilities:
Schedule:Outreach Liaison Volunteers are needed on specified weekdays starting one (1) week prior to each of the Information Sessions until the date of the Information Session. Dates and times are listed on the volunteer hub and sent out via email by a Family Services Coordinator.
Time Commitment:We ask that each Outreach Liaison Volunteer commit to working a minimum of three (3) hours during the shift they have committed to, and to serve as a volunteer in this capacity for at least six (6) months.
