Description

Your adventure awaits. Enjoy the "Up North" lifestyle that northern Wisconsin has to offer in every season. Travel along 169 miles of the St. Croix River. Explore the 1.5 million acres of the Chequamegon-Nicolet ATV Trails. Chase six waterfalls including the biggest in the state at Pattison State Park. Kayak the sea caves along the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. For over 22 years, Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity has served families in need of decent, affordable housing through building and repairing homes, communities and hope. Expand your understanding of the need for affordable housing while making positive connections with peers, families and the communities we serve.

This position will develop, implement and document a volunteer recruitment, training, and retention program for the ReStore; develop, implement, and document sustainable marketing and outreach strategies that ultimately contribute towards an increase in unrestricted revenue from increased numbers of store purchases and donations and research and implement best practices for standard ReStore operating policies and procedures.

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.
