Maya’s Hope is a 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of orphaned, special needs, and disenfranchised children on a global scale.

We are looking for that special person who has experience recruiting, training and supervising volunteers for a New York City Gala. We have great volunteers; we just need you to organize their efforts to help make our annual Gala spectacular! This is our biggest fundraising event of the year and the cuties we help depend on its success.

This is a part-time volunteer position that involves working both onsite and virtually. You should know how to use spreadsheets and google calendar in order to organize and schedule volunteer hours.

If you are a suitable candidate, we will contact you and please be prepared to provide three references who have worked with you at a charity gala. If you do not have experience with charity galas and silent auctions, you will not be considered. 

Thank you!
