These positions are AmeriCorps State placements and are available through funding provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The next service year will begin September 6, 2017.

Make a Difference in Your Community

Two Volunteers planting treesAs a Volunteer Maryland Coordinator (VMC), you will spend most of your year of service working at a Service Site to recruit and manage volunteers. Each VMC has a local Service Site that addresses critical community needs across Maryland. The Service Site will have identified program development and volunteer needs prior to your arrival. Once on-site, you will help make their vision a reality.

Expand Your Knowledge and Network

Volunteer Maryland provides an intensive and thorough training in the best practices of volunteer management. The training is based on VM’s Cycle of Volunteer Program Development. The initial training is followed up with on-going staff support and additional monthly training events. During the training, each VMC develops a network of peers across Maryland and works closely with these colleagues throughout the service year.

Join a Dynamic Team of Service Leaders

Volunteer Maryland Coordinators are a diverse and talented group of service leaders. In addition, VM works with extraordinary service and volunteerism colleagues across country. As a VMC, you will have an opportunity to learn from and work alongside your peers, VM staff and alumni, and state and national nonprofit leaders.
