Director of Community Outreach – Trinity Lutheran Congregation

Position: Director of Community Outreach – Trinity Lutheran Congregation
Position Type & Concern Area(s): ,
Organization Description: Trinity Lutheran Congregation is a member of the ELCA and has been in the Minneapolis Cedar-Riverside neighborhood since 1868. It is currently the only viable Christian congregation in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of over 9000 residents. Trinity is committed to being a Christian presence in the C-R neighborhood and a Christian witness to the larger world. Trinity is a presence and an active participant in the neighborhood, through various collaborative initiatives and participation in neighborhood meetings and activities. Trinity's mission is reflected in our mission statement: Nurturing wholeness ' and holiness ' in Cedar-Riverside. We believe that God is big enough for all, only with different names and faces. Therefore, in this neighborhood of primarily East-African Muslims Trinity does not feel a need to convert anyone to Christianity. Our mission is to accompany our brothers and sisters of Cedar-Riverside, help them become who God intends them to be, and break down the barriers of faith, race, language, culture, tribe, and nation.
Position Description:

The Volunteer will be responsible for running Trinity's Safe Place: Homework Help program. Homework Help is a free drop-in program for ages K-12 which offers students help with the homework they bring in each day.The responsibilities include: recruiting tutors; recruiting students; training tutors; scheduling tutors; tracking tutor hours; and other administrative duties. Tutors generally come from Augsburg College and the University of Minnesota, both of which are within a couple of blocks of Trinity. Contacts with appropriate departments at each school already exist and Trinity is well-respected at both institutions. Students know about our program through word-of-mouth and flyers that are distributed throughout the neighborhood.
