Volunteer coordinator staffing needs

The primary role of the volunteer coordinator is to establish and operate the volunteer management system.  Volunteers should have a designated supervisor to whom they can turn for advice, guidance, encouragement, and feedback.  The supervisor needs to provide the materials, training, and direction to enable the volunteer to perform assigned tasks.  The supervisor should be both willing and able to manage volunteers.   A supervisor is responsible for getting the job done by enabling others to do the work.  The most important responsibility of a supervisor of volunteers is creating an environment that empowers the volunteers to perform their duties.  An effective supervisor should be concerned that volunteers have confidence in themselves, are satisfied with their level of contribution, and have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through their service.
