Team Development Specialist

From AFSWiki
Jump to: navigation, search



The Team Development Specialist (TDS) is a full time staff person assigned to a volunteer team (or cluster of small contiguous volunteer teams) as the primary staff contact for hosting, sending, and volunteer development. Working in close collaboration with the volunteer leadership for his or her team(s), the TDS develops new and existing volunteers in order to ensure that the team goals for hosting and sending can be met in compliance and with quality. The ultimate goal of the TDS is to strengthen the volunteer team(s) with whom s/he works in order to position them for sustainable program growth in the future. One way that TDS strengthen their teams is by assisting them to work more efficiently and effectively across the many different departments within AFS USA and better utilize the many tools and resources that the organization makes available. To succeed, the TDS will need to become an integral part of the team(s) with which they work and ultimately share equally with volunteers the responsibility and accountability required for the success of the team and the AFS program.
