United Way of Central Alberta
Position / Placement: PIT Crew Members
Want to make a BIG difference? Don’t have a lot of time? We are looking for Priority Impact Team members!
The Role: Priority Impact Team members (PIT crews) meet with agencies, assess applications to ensure that they align with United Way’s priorities and recommend funding allocations to the Community Impact Council (CIC) who makes the final decisions about how donor dollars will be invested in our community. There are three PIT crews; one for each of our three priority areas:
Education – helping kids be all they can be From the early years to adulthood, we’re supporting the full path of development to help children and youth achieve their potential.
Income – moving people from poverty to possibility We are working with the community to create opportunities so that individuals with low or limited incomes can prosper.
Wellness – building strong and healthy communities We are supporting individuals and families to feel a personal sense of wellbeing and connection to their community.
The Commitment: All PIT volunteers are asked to participate in the orientation on January 9, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Red Deer School Board Offices. This is where you will learn the steps to reviewing applicants, decide on the schedule for reviews and meet the people you will be volunteering with. From January through March, the PIT crew members visit agencies, assess applications to ensure that they align with United Way’s priorities and recommend funding allocations to the Community Impact Council (CIC) who makes the final decisions about how donor dollars will be invested in our community.
Desirable Experience and Skills: No previous experience is necessary, as you will participate in a detailed orientation; receive great support from your team of volunteers and the UW staff. The main requirements are enthusiasm, an interest in our community and a commitment to see the task through to the conclusion.
The following would be useful but should not be seen as a barrier to participation as all the necessary training and information will be given to PIT Crew members:
• Understanding of social issues in Central Alberta
• Knowledge of social services sector in Central Alberta
