Tacoma Habitat for Humanity Construction Volunteer Lead
Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity’s mission directed service to our community is a direct reflection of the urgent need for safe and affordable housing in our community. Habitat is unique in that we partner with low-income households in order to provide a lasting and permanent affordable housing solution through our affordable homeownership program. Habitat is a hand up, not a hand out. Our homeowners participate in the building of their own homes alongside thousands of volunteers each year that are drawn from businesses, local and national schools, religious groups, active and retired members of the armed forces, and dozens of additional partners. This community support is built on our reputation as a regional and national leader in affordable housing because of our innovative solutions to homeownership, neighborhood revitalization, and deep partnerships with our local governments. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.

Member Duties : The Construction Volunteer Lead (CVL) will interact with hundreds of volunteers during the service term to provide leadership, training and support of volunteers and clients in the construction and repair of homes for qualified clients. The CVL will lead volunteers in construction tasks, provide on-site orientation and safety instruction for volunteers and clients, serve as a build crew leader, gain a greater understanding of building techniques, and maintain safety equipment. The CVL will participate in organizational meetings to help engage more volunteers, improve project outcomes, and learn more about the affordable housing mission. Attendance will be required at scheduled AmeriCorps team meetings and team training activities. Additional service projects during days of National Service will also be required. We encourage those with strong leadership and interpersonal skills to apply to this team based program.
