A Faith That Does Justice (AFTDJ) is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

The Director of Volunteer Engagement provides virtual oversight and management of the volunteer program for AFTDJ. Critical to this role are the abilities to build strong partnerships both inside and outside AFTDJ and to recruit, place and retain a diverse and energized group of dedicated volunteer resources. Working with other AFTDJ Core Volunteers, the Director of Volunteer Engagement will work to expand the number of volunteer opportunities and ensure that vital AFTDJ operations are appropriately staffed to meet organization’s mission and goals. The Director of Volunteer Engagement will periodically interact with other volunteers to ensure that they remain committed to service with AFTDJ and have a rewarding personal and developmental experience while volunteering.
