A well-run rebuilding project requires a lot of planning and skill behind the scenes to ensure that clients, volunteers, and others come together to have an impactful, uplifting project day. As the AmeriCorps Project Coordinator, you will manage rebuilding projects from start to finish, beginning with the initial visit to assess the client’s home repair needs, through the completion of the work scope and final project evaluation. You will coordinate with clients, skilled volunteers, community partners, vendors, inspectors, and staff to develop and implement sustainable and effective project logistics practices. You will also follow up with clients after each project to ensure that the health or safety concerns of the clients were addressed according to the work scope and complete any punch list items.
