UCLA Volunteer Day – Leadership Roles

July 10th, 2015

Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Jul 10, 2015
Last Day: Sep 26, 2015



UCLA alumni, faculty, staff, parents, continuing students, and community members are needed to fill vital leadership roles on Volunteer Day. All leadership roles require the individual to be available on Volunteer Day (Saturday, September 26) as well as for training and information sessions over the summer (times TBD). Learn more about the available roles and sign up below:

Requirements for all Leaders

Successful Volunteer Day leaders possess the following attributes:

Strong interpersonal skills necessary to clearly communicate information to the Community Partner organization and volunteers
Organizational skills to successfully manage the project
Creativity and vision for organizing the service project activities
Promptness in returning calls and emails from UCLA Volunteer Center staff
Flexibility and the ability to adapt to unexpected challenges

Project Leader

Each Volunteer Day site has one Project Leader that coordinates all aspects of the service project from start to finish. This includes working with Volunteer Center staff, the community partner, Task Captains, Service Liaisons, and volunteers to make a big difference in the community. Project Leaders are responsible for ensuring that the project is well-managed, the impact on the community is clear, and that the service work gets done. Some summer availability and the ability to travel to and from the site are necessary.

Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

Work with the Community Partner and Volunteer Day Coordinator to determine the scope of work for the day
Work with the Volunteer Day Coordinator to make sure all project plans and supplies are ready before the big day
Communicate weekly with the Volunteer Center and Community Partner
Along with the Community Partner, arrange a welcome for the volunteers that reflects the mission of the Community Partner and the impact of the day’s project
Communicate to volunteers the goals of the day and the need the project addresses
Ensure that volunteer efforts meet the expectations and goals of the Community Partner
Encourage future service to volunteers by promoting further engagement with the Community Partner, on-campus student service organizations, Volunteer Center programs, and area non-profits

Task Captain

For every 10-25 new student volunteers on Volunteer Day, a Task Captain is assigned to help them through their service work. Task Captains often lead a specific subset of the volunteer work, such as painting a mural, building a community garden planter, or mentoring a small group of schoolchildren. Task Captains are led by the Project Leader and work closely with volunteers to make a difference and impact in the community. September availability and the ability to travel to and from the site are necessary.

Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

Work with the Project Leader on the scope of work, design of project, and needed supplies to complete the project
Report to & manage tasks from Project Leader; provide assistance as needed
Ensure that the assigned group has a task to do and is completing it to the best of their abilities
Find new tasks for the group to take on once finished with the assigned task
Communicate to volunteers the goal of the day and the need the event addresses
Manage and delegate service work to volunteers
Ensure that volunteer efforts meet the expectations and goals of the Community Partner
Encourage future services to volunteers by promoting further engagement with the Community Partner, on-campus student service organizations, Volunteer Center programs, and area non-profits
