The National Remember Our Troops Campaign is a 501(c)(3) military and veterans charity dedicated to remembering the service and sacrifice of all military servicemembers, all veterans and their families, supporting those in need and letting them know they are not forgotten.
We are hiring Divisional Volunteer Coordinators.
This is a mostly work-at-home position. We will expect you to work at least 30 hours per week.
You will need a quiet home office, internet, a phone or headset and the ability to send a fax.
Moderate computer skills are REQUIRED. NROTC does NOT teach computer skills.
Apply from anywhere in the USA
The United States has a long history of volunteering. Last year 62.6 million people volunteered in some way. Volunteering to help military veterans in need and their families is a noble thing to do! Many people are eager to volunteer for this cause.
THIS IS A PAID POSITION… We are NOT asking you to volunteer!
Initially, your job will be to recruit volunteers.
What will my volunteers be doing?
Your volunteers will be hosting Card Signing Donation Tables at various public locations. Once you have recruited a volunteer, your job will be to arrange various table setup locations and dates by phone, and transmit this information to your volunteers by email. We coach you on how to do this. Its simple and easy!
How big is my division?
Your goal should be to have your division fully staffed with volunteers as soon as possible. Your division should easily hold 20 to 30 volunteers… or more! Some of your volunteers will rotate in and rotate out.
You are in charge of recruiting, inspiring, training and managing your volunteers by telephone and email. We expect you to be willing to travel to various donation table setups or other fundraising activities within your division from time to time, on days of your choice, while training volunteers… Its Fun!
Note: It is NOT necessary to personally show up at a fundraising event to train each new volunteer. This volunteer activity is simple enough that it can be accomplished WITHOUT YOU BEING THERE PERSONALLY!… Email and phone conversation with your volunteers is usually all that is necessary!
How much does this job pay? We cannot pay remote employees by the hour but you will be paid a very generous 15% of all NET TO NROTC donation dollars produced by your volunteers weekly by direct deposit or mail. Because we are a charity, your income is capped at $2,000 per week.
What are NET TO NROTC Donations? Your volunteers will be allowed to reimburse themselves in cash for their expenses, up to 25% of the contents of their donation container. These authorized expenses include mileage at 25 cents per mile to and from their home, road tolls, initial table supplies, additional table supplies, any table setup or registration fees that may be charged by any event promoter and gratuity items purchased from NROTC or any other vendor.
After each event your volunteer will reimburse themselves for their expenses and send the remaining donations to NROTC. These remaining donations are the NET TO NROTC Donations.
Where do I find my volunteers?
There are several major national websites for people to find volunteer opportunities and for volunteer coordinators to find volunteers. There are statewide, countywide and community volunteer agencies, United Ways, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, (RSVP) agencies, military base volunteer agencies, college and university agencies and more. Take a quick look at many of them (All with active links) HERE
Establish good working relationships with the managers of the volunteer agencies within your division and you will always have new volunteers coming your way. NROTC will also be sending volunteers to you as a result of our national advertising and internet presence.
You can also find many volunteers using social media websites.
Recruiting volunteers can be easily accomplished on the internet by directing people to our VOLUNTEER RECRUITING WEBPAGE
Where do my volunteers setup their donation tables? Grocery stores and big box stores like Walmart and Sam’s Club are our bread and butter because our volunteers can setup their tables during the week. Great weekend events typically occur every weekend, everywhere.
Booking Stores and Events:
Booking table setups at grocery stores and events for your volunteers… and transmitting this information to them will be one of your primary duties. Most of this can be accomplished on the internet, by phone, by email and by fax.
How many donations does an average table setup produce? We have been doing donation table setups in the State of Maryland for three years now. We ran the numbers. The average table setup produces $312.00. Most of our table setups have been grocery stores and not larger weekend events.
For evaluation purposes use our average $312.00 minus 25% = $234.00 AVERAGE NET TO NROTC. A little less than $234.00 is not too bad. Your volunteer’s expenses will not always be 25% and donation dollars received will vary.
*Your division will be under-performing if you are booking less than 2 events/setups per day for your volunteers.
*After you have had a chance to build your volunteer base and develop your volunteer referral agency contacts, your division will be expected to be performing at a minimum of 3 events/setups per day or 21 setups per week. Booking 3 events/setups per day for your volunteers is NOT a difficult task, especially considering the size of your division.
How do I get my volunteers started?
Its easy, we have a webpage on the internet where you can send your volunteers to complete their paperwork and obtain all the documents, table hand-outs, table graphics, banners and everything they will be needing to get started. Just send them to nrotc.org/volunteer-portal
When visiting our Volunteer Portal, you and your volunteers will need a password to download most of our documents, graphics and other files. You will receive this password when you are hired.
We do expect you to get started right away after being hired and be willing to work at least 30 hours per week. Each time you register with a volunteer agency, signup a new volunteer or book a fundraising event for a volunteer, we receive notification. We will be monitoring for activity on your part.
