Want to be a part of Habitat for Humanity, but don’t have much experience?
AmeriCorps is often referred to as the domestic version of the Peace Corps. Members serve at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community groups around the country. AmeriCorps members are bright and motivated people with a passion for service, many of whom are changing careers, preparing for a degree, or taking a break to do something different.
View the AmeriCorps Flyer here to get more information or visit Habitat International’s website to learn more about AmeriCorps. National members work directly with families, volunteers, and in the community. VISTA members work to develop processes and help the organization grow.
Both programs come with a stipend from AmeriCorps, a financial award to be applied to educational costs or debt, and support and training from AmeriCorps and Habitat for Humanity International. Applicants apply for specific positions at specific organizations, so members are free to try to serve in a new community or work to help neighbors in their hometown.
