About Us

The Senior Volunteerism and Service Delivery Manager is an integral member of the Volunteerism and Service Delivery Team, working to implement GSUSA strategy through the execution of actionable plans to drive volunteer satisfaction and improve program delivery.

  • The VTK provides consistent and easily accessible online resources and tools to volunteers on key responsibilities like: our steps for running an effective troop meeting, how to plan a year of meetings, and how to deliver a badge or a Journey experience.
  • The Senior Manager will ensure new components and enhancements to the VTK are built and supervise the role/function for user testing research to collect/inform enhancements and optimal user experience.
