Front Desk-Administrative Assistant volunteers are needed at In Real Life Enterprises. They Assist IRLE by greeting clients and visitors with respect, kindness and efficiency; sort mail and distribute to clients as appropriate; create labels for new client files; file client files; make photocopies; send faxes; answer telephones; perform other general support tasks. Front Desk volunteers gain a lot of exposure to the clientele we serve without working in a direct service setting.
