HELP WANTED: CALL KC POSITIONS AVAILABLE

Short and sweet — what we’re doing here is working, but we need help.

As a pure volunteer organization, we’re completely staffed by volunteers. That was the plan from day one and even when we locate appropriate funding to pay for a full-time employee or two, that will remain the plan.

And so far, it’s worked. Numbers don’t lie and the more than 1,400 community service hours that we’ve recruited for, scheduled and managed in the last 18 months proves that. However, and this is a good thing, it’s working too well.

Simply put, the time has come and we need more volunteers to help us recruit and manage more volunteers. Therefore, we have created three different types of positions to help us continue this growth. If you believe in helping others and want to assist in spreading that kindness, these opportunities below may be perfect for you.

If interested in joining our ranks, or if you have questions, please contact Brent Lager at brent@thecallkc.org or 816-721-5529.
