Description

Service Location: Brethren Disaster Ministries, Carolina Rebuild Project, Lumberton, NC

SBP has teamed up with Brethren Disaster Ministries to bring even more families home and benefit the community at large. Our missions have joined together for one cause; to help bring families home who lost everything to a natural disaster.


Learn how to build a home while helping families and the North Carolina community recover from Hurricane Florence. During their AmeriCorps term, Project Leads will work on clients' homes and oversee groups of skilled and unskilled volunteers in rebuilding projects. Help North Carolina recover from natural disaster while serving your community, gaining transferable work skills and serving an AmeriCorps term that provides a living stipend and education award on completion. Applicants for this position do not need any prior construction experience. As long as you are willing to learn, are adaptive to change, and are excited to serve as part of a team that will lead a diverse array of volunteer groups, we encourage you to apply!


Project Leads play a vital role in Brethren Disaster Ministries’ Rebuilding Program, as they are the volunteers’ main point of on-site contact and actively lead the construction efforts on clients’ homes. A Project Lead is responsible for managing and facilitating training for around 5 volunteers per day. Monitoring safety, ensuring quality work, effectively participating in construction, and completing tasks on schedule are critical functions of the position.
