Become a Chapter Coordinator
Chapter LocationsProject Linus chapters are geographically based. As such you will need to live in the same geographic area as the existing chapter coordinator who will be transferring the chapter to you.
Please note: There are many important things to consider when thinking of becoming a Project Linus chapter coordinator. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic about our mission, and willing to follow procedures, which can be time consuming. Basic organizational and computer skills are required. An ability to work well with people is a must. You are the representative of Project Linus! If that sounds like you, then we are anxious to hear from you! However if you are mostly interested in becoming one of our precious Project Linus "blanketeers" – please contact your nearest chapter for more information.
Chapter Coordinator ResponsibilitiesA Project Linus Chapter Coordinator is the representative of Project Linus in a given area, called a chapter. Each Chapter Coordinator is responsible for all administrative duties pertaining to the chapter. These include among other things:
- Finding volunteers in your community.
- Establishing relationships with recipient facilities.
- Insuring quality control in blanket making, and making sure that all blankets meet Project Linus' high standards.
- Handling correspondence for the chapter between the chapter and volunteers, and the chapter and Project Linus National Headquarters. Email must be checked and phone calls returned on a DAILY basis.
- Adhering to all Project Linus reporting requirements which include quarterly reports of chapter activity, annual reports and others (all reporting is done directly to Project Linus National Headquarters – not to federal and state agencies).
- Adhering to Project Linus financial policies and reporting requirements.
