Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity is seeking five AmeriCorps members for a year-long service opportunity beginning in August. Positions are Construction Crew Leader (2) Construction Crew Leader, Repair (2), and Volunteer Services Coordinator (1).
Members receive a living allowance and other benefits. Those with a passion for affordable housing, an adventurous spirit, and a sincere desire to serve others are encouraged to apply.
At Asheville Habitat, AmeriCorps members play an important role in providing leadership on project sites, engaging volunteers to become champions for the mission, and creating new tools and systems to build capacity. During a year of service, members gain insight into a non-profit organization and receive hands-on experience in leadership, team building, public speaking, and community development. For some, AmeriCorps is an experiential gap year before college, grad school, or a career; for others it is a stepping stone towards a job in the nonprofit sector.
“I knew that by the end of my second year of service I could not say goodbye to our affiliate, the coworkers who had become like family, and the mission that made me excited to go to work every day. I was fortunate enough to have a combination of great timing and supportive leadership on my side to make my transition to full-time staff seamless,” shared Sydney Monshaw, now a Fund Development staffer.
