The organization I work for has monthly volunteer opportunities, and quarterly volunteer opportunities. The trouble comes when someone serves quarterly (say, the 1st Monday of each quarter) and we need to fill the other 2 first Mondays of the months in that quarter. Is there a term for that time frame?

Looks like you know exactly which months you're short of volunteers. Why not simply ask for volunteers for those months instead of devising a formula?
Here are some suggestions for ways to phrase different combinations of days in a calendar quarter.
If someone works the first two Mondays of a quarter, the second two Mondays are available for Second-Half Quarterly Volunteers. The opposite: First-Half Quarterly Volunteers. If every other Monday (1 & 3, 5 & 7, etc.) is reserved, the Alternating Even Mondays are available for quarterly volunteers; the same could be said for Alternating Odd Monday Volunteers. If the first and last Mondays are booked, Middle Monday Volunteers are needed; the opposite could be First/Last Monday Volunteers. If a random selection of Mondays have already been reserved, the difference of Mondays are available for quarterly volunteers.
