Apartment Life coordinators get to create and provide an excellent Apartment Life (AL) experience to residents and staff in an apartment community! Coordinators are passionate about the vision and mission of AL and combine this passion with skill to plan consistently excellent and irresistible events, provide exceptional personal communication, and offer acts of genuine care and radical hospitality for those in their scope of service—ultimately impacting the community and the lives of apartment residents.
A coordinator's work can be summed up with three words: care, connect, and call.
CARE for people in their community
CONNECT them in relationships
CALL others to do the same
Let's dig into that!
Apartment Life coordinators serve an apartment community by...
- Planning and hosting events for the residents in the apartment community for the purpose of caring for and connecting with residents, connecting residents to one another and to services and great local businesses in the wider community.
- Providing a caring touch to residents and staff with the help of other residents and a network of community support.
- Inviting residents to share online about their great experience in the community. We call this enhancing online reputation,
- Administrating their program at key points every month by developing monthly calendars/event flyers/social media posts to market activities to residents, managing an event budget process, preparing monthly summaries, meeting with staff for planning, and meeting with their program director for equipping and development.
- Engaging a support team of volunteers, vendors, and community partners to maximize budget and impact.
- Many coordinators visit new residents shortly after move-in to invite them to connect to the community. They may also visit residents who are near the end of their lease term to connect with them as well.
