The Volunteers Coordinator Song

Lyrics "The coordinator song"
- Em C G D
Have you heard of Gustav, the coordinator?
He was the bravest man alive...
Once there was an ESC - project coming up
through which new volunteers arrived.
Gustav wasn’t scared, cause he had the plan.
The preparation skills are the key!
He recruited volunteers and contacted SO’s,
He arranged accommodation and means of transportation.
Collected contact details, signed many agreements.
Was there still more work to do?
Yes, there is - a lot more administration...
like the CIGNA - and police registration.
He planned an introduction week, found different social mentors.
And even Carla got her -VISA in time.
Gustav wasn’t scared, cause he had the plan.
His management skills are the key!
Ten volunteers at the same time - Seemed like a mess.
There was the travel reimbursement, food and pocket money.
The work of coordination was never getting less.
So, was there still more - work to do?
He prepared monthly meetings, enrolled in language lessons,
In a nutshell he was responsible for all.
For all these evaluations and youth pass sessions
and in the end - for so much more.
But Gustav wasn’t scared, cause he had the plan.
His communication skills are the key!
“-Hej Gustav, can you buy us new toilet paper, please?
Because there's nothing left anymore…”
“-Dear Karla, that’s for sure not part of my work description.
Go and buy some on your own!”
You see Gustav wasn’t scared, cause he had the plan.
His coordinator skills were the key!
After several great months, it’s time to go
for the volunteers back home, it’s their end of the show.
But not for Gustav, he has more things to do.
You see Gustav wasn’t scared, cause he had the plan.
All of his skills were the key!
What would we do without him?
