Hello NOVAA folks,
There is a new transitional housing initiative opening up this winter in collaboration with members of the Portland State University community at the First United Methodist Church, which will be the evening home of the new "PSU Landing," which will host up to 8 PSU students experiencing houselessness.
There are a couple evening part time jobs open related to this, one of which specifically pertains to overseeing the new volunteer program associated with the landing. I've cut and pasted the Landing Coordinator position below (a mix of volunteer coordinator and program coordinator). All open positions can be seen in full here: https://fumcpdx.org/were-hiring/
I do not oversee this position, but my students will be volunteering for it, so I am excited to spread the word amongst those who have prior volunteer management experience!
