If you are not familiar with the environment, the easiest way to do this will be to use the Delegates function in Outlook:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/outlook-help/manage-another-person-s-mail-and-calendar-items-HA102749416.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA102892906

If you have many users however, the best way to do this is PowerShell:

What you need in your case is something like this:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity mailbox@domain.com:\Calendar -User you@domain.com -AccessRights Editor

You can also use shared mailbox to host the actual calendar, so you don't have to pay for additional license. For more info review this link:
