We strongly encourage people of color, transgender and non-binary people to apply. HRC is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes everyone, including non-LGBTQ people, to join our team.
The Communities & Volunteer Relations program advances LGBTQ equality by keeping HRC strong, funded and fighting through our management of an impactful volunteer leadership program. We empower the volunteer leaders in our communities to engage and expand support for HRC’s mission locally. We seek to attract individuals from diverse backgrounds, reflective of the rich diversity present in our LGBTQ and ally communities. In return, we provide personal enrichment, leadership development and a rewarding volunteer experience as a resource of HRC’s in order to increase activism, raise critical funds and activate grasstops and grassroots individuals nationwide.
The Communities & Volunteer Relations Manager will guide, support, grow and develop HRC’s volunteer-led steering committees, members of HRC’s Board of Governors and an army of volunteer advocates in an assigned portfolio of HRC steering committee communities for the nation’s largest civil rights organization working for LGBTQ equality. In collaboration with the communities in their portfolio and colleagues, the Manager will work to ensure HRC’s annual fundraising, political, diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI), digital and volunteer engagement goals for each community is achieved.
The Manager’s primary role will be to collaborate with local board members, as leaders of HRC’s steering committee communities, to attract, engage, develop and retain a dedicated local volunteer workforce to support the organization and mobilize the grassroots as formidable volunteer political organizers and fundraisers. The Manager coaches and educates steering committees how to develop cohesive and productive teams and ensures that annual goals are strategically planned and executed against. A proven track record of excellence in communication is required.
Guide volunteers to accomplish organizational fundraising, membership, diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) and political goals by implementing annual work plans as the primary staff contact for leaders for assigned steering committees. Partner and work closely with colleagues, steering committee co-chairs and board members to develop and inspire successful, results-oriented leaders.
Identify, cultivate, recruit and coach highly effective volunteer fundraisers, ambassadors and leaders by creating meaningful and rewarding experiences.
