21'Shelter Walls Weatherization Coordinator Summer Associate
Help Hesed House convert its warehouse into a new social distancing shelter to safely serve its guests and not have to drastically cut its capacity in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic! Weatherizing the north and east walls of this old warehouse, protects the new shelter built within. It also saves heating and cooling costs, and allows the next phase of major shelter construction inside of the old warehouse, to move forward pending funding. The Summer Associate needs to possess a good work ethic, some general construction skills, and the ability to digest and perform the tasks needed with the training provided as the project progresses. The Summer Associate will set up and implement a work schedule for completion, including some group volunteer days to help see the project through. The Summer Associate will also help recruit and train the volunteers for volunteer work days. The project will involve sealing outer cinderblock walls, as well as removing and replacing plyboard in some areas of the walls, and sealing those areas as well. This position is a part of the Housing Action AmeriCorps Network, an AmeriCorps VISTA program managed by Housing Action Illinois since 2010. As such, this position will receive customized training, support, guidance, and networking opportunities, in addition to the traditional opportunities for AmeriCorps positions. Learn more about the program on Housing Action’s website.
