Technical Wiz?

You don’t really need to be a technical wiz-kid, but if you feel comfortable on a computer, you could be tremendously helpful to some of our site coordinators who are great with people, but not necessarily machine.

Sign up for a one-week shift of monitoring the online volunteer calendar and providing a daily roster to the site coordinator. If you have questions, send a note to shelteringchurches@gmail.com

    • Possibly. What you would do is log into the calendar to monitor that the shifts are being filled, etc. If additional assistance is required (i.e. the shifts are not being filled), you can let me (Andrea) know so that I can push out requests via social media and email to our volunteer network.

      Each day (sometime before 8 p.m.) you would need to provide a volunteer roster to the site coordinator. (This is where some on-site action may be required if your site coordinator is not able to access email to print the roster that you send). It needs to be made that day to account for changes that may have occurred to the calendar (such as cancelations/replacements/updates).

      You do not necessarily need to have done the shelter training to do this task :)

      Please let me know if you have additional questions.

  1. I am reaching out to our Computer Science and IT departments at Concordia and have hopes that we could get a student per week through those two programs. I will keep you posted.

    • Thanks Chelle. We have had a pretty good response already actually. And we do not need an assistant every week (some site coordinators are pretty adept at this sort of thing). I have two weeks available for help right now.
