North Star Reach, an independent 501 (c)3 organization, is a universally accessible resident camp facility providing life-changing camp experience for children with serious health challenges and their families entirely cost-free. We rely on the charitable gifts of generous donors to create camp magic and a strong culture of community values (www.northstarreach.org/aboutus/values-mission) that serve as compass points to guide our way. Some have called what we do fun, but we like to think of it as SeriousFun. In fact, we liked that idea so much, we are member of SeriousFun Children’s Network (www.seriousfunnetwork.org), the world’s largest family of camps for children with serious illnesses. Through year-round resident camp programs, we strive to leave a positive impact on all our participants and those who support us. Our current schedule includes seven weekend family camps and six week-long summer resident camps.
Channel your inner Pied Piper (flute optional) as our full-time Volunteer Recruitment Manager, helping to build a cadre of talented and well-trained camp staff. Like a human GPS, you will guide new and returning staff through our application, screening, scheduling, and training process. In this role, your playful professionalism will be continually on display as the primary liaison and source of answers to frequently and infrequently asked questions. You will also show off your googlesque organizational and zuckerbergian technological aptitudes managing and maintaining our staff application portal and database. This position requires living on-site in furnished accommodations during camp programs (summer resident camp/spring and fall family camps) and work out of our Ann Arbor office throughout the rest of the year. Occasional travel along with evenings/weekends are also expected for recruitment, fundraising and other events. A comprehensive benefit package (https://hr.umich.edu/benefits-wellness) is provided by North Star Reach through the University of Michigan Health System.
The Volunteer Recruitment Manager engages community and collegiate resources to connect and interface with potential staff members to educate and evaluate their skills and abilities to supervise and support children in a camp environment.
