Rainier Valley Corps is a start-up project. Currently, there are only five paid staff. We would love your help! Please see the description of the RVC volunteer teams below and email Laura Garcia, Volunteer Program Manager, at [email protected] if you would like to join or for additional information. All meetings are monthly at the RVC Office at 3715 S. Hudson St., Suite 102 in Columbia City unless otherwise indicated.
Volunteers with more time availability who are able to regularly support RVC for a prolonged period of time. Super Volunteers are involved in daily RVC activities such as organizational operations, fundraising, bookkeeping, development, photography, website management, and graphic design. The time commitment of a Super Volunteer is usually 10-15 hours per week.
Task Force Volunteers
Volunteers who serve on a task force focused on a specific project such as curriculum development, program evaluation, Quarterly Gathering planning, etc. A Task Force usually has a RVC staff member leading it. The Task Force Volunteers will attend Task Force meetings and volunteer, as time permits, to take on specific pieces of work in between meetings. The time commitment for Task Force Volunteers’ workload varies depending on the timeline for a given Task Force, but the hours involved and timeline will clearly be shared in advance.
A group of volunteers that participate in the development of RVC strategies and have a critical function in the mission of RVC. One of the most important functions of the RVC Partnership group is to provide strategic feedback and advice as a collective group and ensure that big decisions are made in the best interests of RVC. The RVC partnership group will meet once a month for two hours, with an agenda distributed in advance, and members will not be expected to do any work between meetings.
