    Community & Volunteer Coordinator

    Oregon City, Oregon, United States


    Downtown Oregon City Association is seeking a dynamic, experienced, and resourceful professional to be our first Community & Volunteer Coordinator. This position builds on the work completed by a RARE/Americorp member that completed a year of service in August. Over the past year, DOCA has undergone significant changes, growing from two permanent staff positions and four volunteer committees to 10 permanent staff members and six volunteer committees. The majority of this change is due to a new contract to provide staffing services at the Oregon City Municipal Elevator as well as making permanent a formerly grant-funded Clean Team and expanding our marketing functions.

    First and foremost, DOCA is a volunteer driven community organization. Much of the work we do is made possible by the involvement of Downtown stakeholders and community members at large. There is also immense opportunity to partner with academic programs and to use Downtown as a laboratory for learning and professional internships. This new position will work with DOCA staff and volunteers to retain a diverse corps of volunteers and work directly with downtown stakeholders to help advance the organization’s mission.

    If you are passionate about placemaking, building strong communities, history and heritage, and supporting entrepreneurship, please refer to the enclosed application instructions and job description.
