The Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources Inc. (GWAAR) currently has a full-time Volunteer Coordinator position available in its Elder Law & Advocacy Office in Madison.
The Volunteer Coordinator is an essential team member within the Senior Medicare Patrol program, a federally-funded grant. The goal of the Senior Medicare Patrol is to raise awareness and identify Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse. The program focuses on educating and empowering Medicare beneficiaries to be good healthcare consumers and to recognize potential misuses of Medicare. The Volunteer Coordinator is responsible for recruitment, training, placement, and oversight of volunteers across the state. The Volunteer Coordinator will also perform outreach to Medicare beneficiaries, create publications, update the program website, and work to develop and strengthen partnerships with other agencies and professional associations.
A bachelor’s degree and prior experience coordinating volunteers are required. This position requires daily interaction with other professionals as well as Medicare beneficiaries; therefore, superior written and oral communication skills are necessary. Familiarity with Medicare, Social Security, and/or other benefit programs is highly desirable. Access to a reliable vehicle, a valid driver’s license, and the ability to occasionally travel overnight throughout the state are required.
The complete job description is located at www.gwaar.org. To apply, send your resume and cover letter to the address below. Resumes sent without a cover letter will not be accepted.
