– 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 non-profit 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.
