Juneau Project Homeless Connect - Volunteer Opportunities 2013

When: Monday, January 28, 2013
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Centennial Hall

The Juneau Homeless Coalition is looking for 50 volunteers to assist with the 2013 Project Homeless Connect event in the following roles:

Greeters make a first impression. They welcome Juneau Project Homeless Connect consumers and explain the layout of the event and the services available.

Intake/Check-In Volunteers
In order to efficiently and effectively service consumers, check-in is crucial. At check-in consumer needs are assessed. The volunteers at this station will fill out the Point In Time Homeless Count Survey and the Project Homeless Connect Intake Form. This form will act as a guide for the client escorts.

Client Escorts
Client Escorts guide consumers to various stations depending on the service needs assessed at check-in. The client escort is responsible for making sure everyone stays on track, ensuring that the homeless consumer has received meal service and provides guidance and hospitality to each individual.

Set Up and Break Down Volunteers – Morning or Afternoon
Volunteers are needed to set up the event, which includes table and chair arrangement, the placing of banners and signs, and other general organizational tasks. (7am-9am)
Break down volunteers help to close the event, disassemble service areas, and do general clean up. (2:30 p.m. to close)

Traffic Flow Monitor
Volunteers are also needed to maintain traffic flow within the building, ensuring that stairways and elevators remain unobstructed and helping maintain orderly check-in and check-out areas.
