Supervised Visitation Monitors
The Supervised Visitation Monitor conducts monitoring of supervised visits and/or exchanges for our families.
All volunteers would need to give us a six-month commitment and would need to work at least one shift per week consisting of 4.5 hours. During the week that shift would be from 3 – 7:30 p.m. and a weekend shift would vary on time between 9:30 – 5:30 p.m. The initial volunteer training would be 12 hours over two weeks and would include: documentation standards, intervention protocols and safety protocols.
Duties include: review of client files for familiarity with family situation, documentation of visit interactions, intervention for inappropriate behavior, post-visit review with visiting party, if necessary, and preparation of visit documentation when requested.
The successful volunteer will be good at multi-tasking (must be able to observe and listen to visit interactions while typing on a laptop), comfortable for sitting for a minimum of one hour and solid writing skills. The successful volunteer will also need to pass a background check. Spanish language skills are a plus.
We periodically need light maintenance help with our facility i.e. installing shelves, white boards etc. This would be on an as needed basis.
We need help posting content to our website, Facebook, email marketing and creating marketing materials. This would be an on-going commitment.
We are looking for help with a large software implementation initiative. Would likely be a six to nine month commitment. We are also looking for on-going help maintaining desktops.
