VoteRiders Volunteer Manager

Overview

VoteRiders, a six-year- old 501(c)(3) national nonpartisan nonprofit, is the first and leading organization focused solely on voter ID. Our goal is to make sure voters have a valid ID if required - and the confidence that they do (or that none is required). We accomplish this primarily through Voter ID Coalitions comprised of partner organizations, especially in voter ID states with highly competitive House, Senate and gubernatorial races. We also plan to reach voters with ID questions or who need help through direct voter contact canvassing, phonebanking and textbanking. We aim to 1) Identify those in need of assistance; 2) Educate voters on the voter ID requirements and process; and 3) Assist those in need of individual help.

The recruitment, management and training of volunteers is a major factor in our success nationally. We are hiring a Volunteer Manager to handle these efforts.

 

Primary Responsibilities

  • Spearhead our national volunteer recruitment, communication and retention efforts
  • Maintain our national volunteer database
  • Develop and manage VoteRiders’ volunteer program such as "VoteRiders Ambassadors” (e.g., sharing social media content, letters-
    to-the- editor, gathering signatories or merely signing a petition, providing transportation to government-issuing ID offices)
  • Create VoteRiders’ volunteer training modules and conduct individual and group volunteer trainings (e.g., Helpline volunteers, Case Workers)
  • Create and manage direct voter contact events including phonebanks and textbanks
  • Other duties as assigned

 

Qualifications

  • Extensive experience in volunteer recruitment and management
  • Understanding of direct voter contact program best practices
  • Experience with VAN or similar voter file
  • Highly self-motivated and -directed
  • Strong affinity for voting rights, networking and building strategic relationships
  • Demonstrated ability to manage details, resourcefully solve problems and follow through with minimum direct supervision
  • Very strong interpersonal communication skills
  • Proven responsiveness and team player
  • Spanish language skills preferred

 

Compensation and Location

VoteRiders’ full-time Volunteer Manager will be paid $5,000/month.

The Volunteer Manager can be located anywhere in the continental United States.
