Job Description and Responsibilities

Volunteer position requiring intense training in child development, early childhood behavior, custodial engineering and interpersonal/intergenerational group dynamics. The position also requires advanced training in alternative dispute resolution, knowledge and execution of security protocols and excellent communication skills. There is a strong emphasis on time management, AP/AR, tracking inventory, procurement, and cost reduction.

I am required to work with no supervision or guidance, to make quick, crucial and often unprecedented decisions regarding Organization Policy, to effectively guide the Organization in the most profitable direction, to set and meet my own deadlines, and to successfully foresee, and plan for, possible contingencies which may affect the overall direction and health of the Organization.

I have been responsible for overseeing, and providing effective guidance to all Junior Members still in the start-up phase, one Founding Member in the established phase, and one Mascot in the puppy phase. The Organization has recently restructured, and both Founding Members have agreed to allocate job duties in accordance with the new structure, needs and direction of the Organization.

I am solely accountable for maintaining the work space according to Industry Standards of cleanliness and organization, the development and implementation safety procedures, and the facilitation of training and educational sessions with Junior Members. In addition, I am responsible for monitoring Junior Members’ media exposure, delegating essential tasks and errands, and ensuring that delegated duties are completed on time and under budget.

I mentor and assist Junior Members of the Organization with all aspects of membership in the Organization, including, but not limited to, cooperative materials and idea sharing, Organization culture and expectations, and effective communication skills. I also provide continuing education regarding changes and developments in matters impacting Members’ effective execution of their duties and tasks. I arrange for and provide morale and team building exercises, and I clearly state and reiterate the rules and expectations for all Organization members.

I handle multiple calendars, provide logistical support and transportation for all Junior Members which includes event planning, Industry-specific networking events, health and fitness campaigns, as well as recognition and celebration of Organization milestones.

I regularly facilitate meetings regarding Members’ job descriptions and required contribution to the Organization. I conduct frequent job performance reviews. I also supervise the fair distribution of Organization assets, as well as periodically and regularly audit financial, social, and internal operations departments.

I am the official Kadala Family Services Spokesperson at education planning meetings, as well as with medical and other professionals. This requires that I keep abreast of the educational needs and progress of Junior Members, track and document any changes relating to the health and well-being of all Organization Members, and remain current on rules and regulation affecting the operations, goals and fiscal health of the Organization. I must take immediate action, when needed, to head-off, or correct, potential and actual educational, health, and welfare problems facing individual Members, as well as the Organization as a whole.

In this role I comprehensively develop recipes, plan menus, procure food inventory and ensure sanitary kitchen conditions while catering to the three extensively different and specific dietary needs of organization members.   I also provide therapeutic and psychiatric services, career development counseling, research support, and referral assistance as needed.
