AFHA Hands on Team members provide historic preservation construction on historic community buildings, and hands-on improvement on public lands. Members will have the opportunity to be trained in structural rehabilitation techniques such as plastering, repointing, window glazing, and surface refinishing. (Training opportunities vary year to year based on projects)
Members work as a team on a varying array of projects throughout the term. These projects are often not all known at the outset of the year, but typical examples are mothballing and stabilizing historic structures, refinishing structural exteriors to protect them from further decay, window rehabilitation, tree plantings, trail building, rehab of interiors to bring old buildings back to life, and many more.
