Join the Launch Volunteer Staff Today!


Who We’re Looking For

Our Volunteer Staff prides itself on having a diverse set of backgrounds, life experiences and beliefs. We don’t do cookie cutters. We have college freshmen majoring in engineering and seasoned broadcast news professionals. Sixth grade teachers and public policy pros. Makers, dreamers, doers, thinkers, and everyone in between. All you have to have is a belief that young people can change the world — and the drive to help them do it. We’re also looking for people who are:

  • Motivated
  • Collaborative
  • Open-Minded
  • Growth-Oriented
  • Committed

What Does Being a Launch Staffer Look Like?

Besides a colorful polo? For starters, you’ll go through training. Over the course of your first year on Staff you’ll learn facilitation skills, interpersonal skills and more through our dedicated training program.

From there, we’ll ask you to volunteer for whatever Launch services you can fit into your schedule: from weekend Workshops at local schools to week-long summer Workshops in Wayne, NE. We’re thankful for any time you can commit throughout the year.

As you continue on with our Volunteer Staff you’ll have the opportunity for continuous education on facilitation techniques, safe space development and more.

In addition, you’ll be part of the Launch Volunteer Staff family. Our staff relies on each other for continued growth, support and celebration of successes. We have weekly gatherings, holiday parties, annual banquets and lots of other formal and informal functions that let you connect and network with super fun, super accomplished fellow volunteers.

On top of all that, the Launch Staff energy is contagious. Launch Staffers have an absolute blast whenever we’re together.


I’m Good at Some Specific Stuff. Do You Need That?

Probably!

We’re volunteer-driven, and we’re ambitious. So we have a full-fledged marketing and storytelling arm, an aggressive curriculum development team, fundraisers, event planners and more. We’d love to find volunteers with experience in:

  • Formal Educational Training
  • Counseling
  • Technical skills
  • Video Production
  • Photography
  • Graphic Design
  • Web Design/Development
  • Fundraising/Giving
  • Event Planning and Programming
  • Theatre and Technical Production
  • Marketing
  • Social Media Strategy and Production
  • Public Speaking Skills
  • First Aid Certification

And anything else you’re good at! Got a talent we can put to use? Let’s talk!


I’m Still Not Sure…

We hear you. Volunteering is a big commitment! We can talk until we’re blue in the face about how fulfilling it is to work with bright young leaders, how valuable it is to network with our Staff, and how much fun we have — but the choice and the commitment are yours.

The best way to make the decision? Talk to a Staffer, and see if it’s right for you. Click here to schedule a coffee date, either in person or online. A member of our recruitment team will be in touch and we’ll help answer questions and see if Launch Volunteer Staff is right for you!

Or maybe you’re ready right now! In that case, Apply for the Launch Volunteer Staff! We can’t wait to meet you.
