VOLUNTEER ROLES 

Central Kids Volunteer Roles

T E A M  L E A D
Team Leads play an essential role in maintaining a smooth and cohesive service for our children. They
facilitate a team huddle after the volunteer pep rally, where they pray for the service and then help
direct volunteers to the appropriate rooms. It is their job to make sure all volunteers have arrived and are
where they need to be. If volunteers are missing the Team Lead contacts volunteer via phone or text to
ensure attendance. In rare cases Team Lead will try to find a sub morning of if a volunteer is absent.
After service begins it is their job to make sure everything is going smoothly, before heading to the
classroom that needs the most help that day.
