Volunteer Coordinator

Our Volunteer coordination team is the backbone of our event and collects all the responses from our participants that want to get involved with one of our teams or another. We essentially organize the teams and work to ensure all of our volunteers are registered on our site and know how to sign up for shifts.

What we do

We prioritize finding the best fit for volunteers while maintaining open communication with our Team leads and the Production Committee. This will helps ensure a positive and productive volunteering experience for everyone involved.

Our VC team encourages our volunteers to create a profile on the Freezer Burn website and then familiarize themselves with the sign-up process. We like to provide clear and concise instructions when it comes time to create your profile to help minimize confusion. This user profile helps streamline the volunteer scheduling process.

In addition to these primary functions, we find that it is helpful to have a system in place for ongoing volunteer opportunities throughout the event. This can include providing hopeful volunteers with a designated point person for questions or concerns as well as conducting regular check-ins to ensure all of our volunteers are comfortable and fulfilling their duties effectively.

Team Dynamics

Our Volunteer Coordination team has a clear distribution of duties and responsibilities that divide the workload amongst team members. This helps ensure that all aspects of the volunteer management process are handled efficiently and effectively. Our lead coordinator helps guide and mentor other coordinators to ensure consistency in the volunteer management process and to recognize opportunities for learning and growth for all of the team members.
