The mission of Comtrea is enhanced by the active participation of citizens of the community. To this end, Comtrea accepts and encourages the involvement of volunteers at all levels of the agency and within all appropriate programs and activities. Comtrea staff are encouraged to assist in the creation of meaningful and productive roles in which volunteers might serve and to assist in recruitment of volunteers from the community.
In addition, the productive utilization of volunteers requires a planned and organized effort. The function of Volunteer Services managed through the Human Resources Department is to provide a central coordinating point for effective volunteer management within the agency, and to direct and assist staff and volunteer efforts to jointly provide more productive agency services. The volunteer program is responsible for maintaining liaisons with other volunteer-utilizing programs in the community and assisting in community-wide efforts to recognize and promote volunteering. The Volunteer Program Manager takes primary responsibility for planning for effective volunteer utilization, for assisting staff in identifying productive and creative volunteer roles, for recruiting suitable volunteers, for training staff to supervise volunteers effectively, and for tracking and evaluating the statistical data reflecting the contribution of volunteers to the agency.
Comtrea encourages committed, compassionate volunteers who share in the belief of our mission to seek information on our volunteer services through our Human Resources Department.
