Medical Missionaries depends entirely on dedicated
volunteers to support our work, and seeks to recruit and train volunteers who can assist. These volunteers will work side-by-side
with Medical Missionaries Board Members and Volunteers who are currently doing this work, gradually assuming more responsibility
for the tasks.
The ideal candidates will have experience
in using QuickBooks to track Income and Expenses. These Volunteers will be responsible for entering Income and Expense information
into QuickBooks, generating invoices, preparing monthly and quarterly reports, and flagging to the President any entries that
seem unusual. These Volunteers report directly to the Medical Missionaries President. Work can be performed at Medical Missionaries headquarters in Manassas, Virginia, or remotely.
Volunteers help with data entry, maintaining/updating mailing lists, and assist in other areas
WAREHOUSE SUPPORT & DONATIONS OF CLOTHING/SUPPLIES
Pick Up and Delivery of Donated Items –
Volunteers assist with picking up/delivering supplies
that are donated to Medical Missionaries. The ideal candidates will have their own vehicles,
preferably a pick-up truck. Most pick-ups and deliveries will be in the Northern Virginia/District
of Columbia area. These Volunteers should reside in the Northern Virginia/DC area.
Volunteers sort donations of medical supplies, medicines, and other supplies, and work in teams to load sea containers
for shipment overseas.
FUNDRAISING / SPECIAL EVENTS / GRANTWRITING
These Volunteers will help our
fundraising efforts, including: overseeing and supporting the main annual fundraising campaign; preparing quarterly reports
to supporters on the domestic and international accomplishments of Medical Missionaries; overseeing targeted crowd-funding
campaigns for specific projects; and assisting with special events.
We also seek volunteers with grantwriting
experience to identify potential grantmakers, lead efforts to write and submit proposals for grants, and follow up with any
reports required by the grantmaker. These Volunteers should reside in the Northern Virginia/DC area.
ONLINE OUTREACH, SOCIAL MEDIA & WEBSITE –
These Volunteers will: administer
the Medical Missionaries website, soliciting content from program administrators and volunteers in the U.S. and abroad;
administer our Facebook page and other social media that Medical Missionaries engages in (e.g., LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter,
Instagram, etc.), and help maintain online profiles. The ideal candidates will have
experience managing one or more social media sites, and have the ability to optimize images for upload. Work can be performed remotely.
Program Oversight and Assessment
will be responsible for monitoring and reporting on a variety of Medical Missionaries programs, especially in conjunction
with our Clinic in Haiti. (Programs include the Clinic itself, water purification, fortified
salt, childhood nutrition, maternal and infant care, dental hygiene, and community health centers.)
Most oversight can be done remotely, based on monthly reports that are compiled and submitted for each program. Periodic assessment of the programs (“How well are we doing?”) is based on review
of the data for those programs over a 12-month period. The ability to travel to Haiti once a year might be beneficial to facilitate
the oversight of the programs.
