TABLE has multiple volunteer shifts every week through both our SnackChef and Weekend Meal Backpack Programs which are led by volunteer Team Leaders. We greatly depend on them! Leaders are responsible for arriving early for the shift to set up and to greet incoming volunteers, sharing with volunteers about what we do at TABLE and training them on the day’s tasks, directing the shift, ensuring all tasks are completed, cleaning up after the shift, and staying until the last volunteer is gone. SnackChef leaders also are responsible for teaching a lesson and leading an activity with kids at after school centers (lesson plan is provided for you).
Most of our Team Leaders are UNC students (sophomores and older) with prior volunteer experience at TABLE. This is a semester-long commitment. Having a car is beneficial to a SnackChef leadership position, but not required. Leaders should be highly responsible, punctual, and comfortable speaking in front of a group. We provide training and background checks for all new leaders.
If you are interested in committing to one of these positions, gaining valuable leadership experience, and supporting TABLE in our mission to feed local kids, fill out the form below.
We accept new leadership requests at the following times:
- March for summer volunteer shifts
- July for fall volunteer shifts
- November for spring volunteer shifts
