Maintain a clean, safe and organized project site.
Ensure that each phase of construction is being completed on schedule and highest quality possible

Provide effective training and constructive feedback to volunteers who are completing insulation, drywall, mudding, painting, flooring, trim, doors and other phases of construction.
Maintain a professional and positive attitude when coordinating volunteers and interacting with team members
Serve as a liaison between the homeowner and volunteers.


REQUIREMENTS
Be at least 17 years of age or older.
Have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
Be a citizen, national, or lawful permanent resident alien of the United States.


BENEFITS
Monthly Living allowance of $1,373
An additional $150 monthly housing stipend for individuals who have previously served in AmeriCorps, NCCC, or VISTA.
Free limited benefits health coverage.
An education award of $5,920 upon successful completion of each 10 month term.
Eligibility to postpone repayment of federally-guaranteed student loans during your service term. (The National Service Trust will also pay all or a portion of the interest that accrued during the service period.)
Child care assistance
Valuable professional development and opportunities to further your career
