2020 Construction Crew Leader VISTA Summer Associate
DuPage Habitat for Humanity seeks to bring people together to build homes, community and hope. Since 1994 Habitat has provided over 150 families with affordable housing and home repair services. The Summer Construction Crew Leader will serve 10 weeks, managing and developing groups of skilled and unskilled volunteers and homeowners on the build sites, all while maintaining a fun, safe and efficient work environment. The provision of a positive volunteer experience will contribute to an increased number of retained volunteers, allowing DuPage Habitat to increase its capacity to provide affordable homeownership and home repair services to reduce the 47 percent of cost-burdened renters in DuPage County. The ideal candidate will have a passion for helping and teaching others with comfortability in facilitating groups. A base knowledge of tools and construction is preferred, but not necessary. The following are physical requirements necessary to perform this job: be on one’s feet for extended periods of time, often on rough and uneven terrain; lift at least 50 lbs. on occasion; work on ladders and heights of up to two-stories on occasion; work in varying weather conditions – sites are often not air-conditioned during summer. This position is a part of the Housing Action VISTA Network, which is 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 VISTA positions. Learn more about the program at Housing Action’s website.
