AmeriCorps Construction Crew Leaders
Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte is looking for 18 individuals to serve as AmeriCorps Construction Crew Leaders. These AmeriCorps members assist on build projects in order to serve more families, and are often the "face" of Habitat to the community. Members lead volunteers and homeowners, providing quality assurance and safety instruction and monitoring. Providing an excellent volunteer experience leads to volunteers' desire to contribute again and support Habitat whether through donations or volunteering. Members at the same time support and befriend the homeowners throughout the project. During the year members will play a key role in serving more than 120 families. These families may be purchasing a new or rehabbed home, or they may be part of our program to provide critical repairs on owner-occupied homes. Members work in teams of two or three, and report to one of our Site Supervisors. Members spend significant time both preparing the sites and finishing projects as teams take projects all the way from start to finish. Habitat Charlotte is committed to green building practices (for instance all new homes are built to LEED Silver Certification standards) and neighborhood development.
All the members should gain significant leadership, conflict resolution and communication skills during their term. In their everyday service activities, and through trainings, they can enhance their skills in a supportive atmosphere. These types of skills translate to many different disciplines and provide a basis for success in a variety of circumstances in their future careers and their personal life. Our senior staff are very supportive and have a good understanding of the program. In spite of the Charlotte affiliate's large size, members always comment on the "family" feel of the organization. There is a team atmosphere among those providing support, and we are committed to making changes during the year that enhance the member experience. The ideal person will be comfortable engaging volunteers and homeowners in both understanding the need for affordable housing and at the same time ensuring that the project is complete by performing tasks diligently and accurately. Strong candidates will possess several of the following characteristics:
- A sincere desire to serve combined with an understanding of why one wishes to serve
- Past history of service participation with Habitat or other non-profits
- Leadership experience and ability
- Good communication skills
- Ability and interest in working with a team
- Patience and flexibility
- Construction experience or experience that required significant time spent outdoors (for construction members)
This is a 46.5-week, full-time (Tuesday–Saturday) opportunity. Additional information including position descriptions, application instructions, and a complete list of benefits that include a living allowance, health insurance and an education award, is available on our AmeriCorps page.
