The Northampton Recovery Center, a program of The Western MA Training Consortium, seeks a 30-hour-per-week Volunteer Coordinator to work in the center in Northampton, MA. This position involves maintaining a safe space for NRC participants, upholding the Code of Ethics and trauma-informed values, overseeing all aspects of membership including peer mentoring, and leadership development, recruiting and scheduling volunteers to maintain a presence at the front desk, current members about their interests, and connecting members with volunteer opportunities, and managing volunteer and membership processes including orientation, record keeping, and recognition among other tasks.
A candidate with lived experience in recovery and a commitment to social justice and creating a sense of belonging is preferred.
