Description

Repairs-focused AmeriCorps members will allow Durham Habitat to significantly extend our reach in the community and provide an educational and rewarding environment for volunteers and partner families. Durham Habitat plans to continue to grow the number of critical repairs projects completed each year. Our team completed 35 repairs in 2015 and 45 repairs in 2016 and is on track to complete 50 repairs in 2017. AmeriCorps members have enabled this growth in families served. Future AmeriCorps members will allow us to sustain this high level of impact and position us to grow more in coming years. In the coming year, each member will be responsible for training at least 5 new volunteers to support the completion of less critical repairs, allowing our staff to efficiently move to the next home in need of a critical repair.

Please Note: Construction skill and experience is strongly encouraged for applicants for this position.
