Posting Description

For one year, you can get paid to build sustainable solutions in a community, gain valuable hands on experience and prepare for your future. This full-time AmeriCorps service position offers a great opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of others while building your own knowledge and skillset.
AmeriCorps National members serve the community in direct service and capacity building activities.
What will you do?
The construction crew leader plays an integral part in building and repairing homes. Lead groups of skills and unskilled volunteers and homeowner families in construction activities while maintaining a safe, efficient work environment, thus, developing and enhancing your volunteer management and construction skills.

  • Typically serve Tuesday - Saturday on the build site.

    Where will you serve?
    Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity works in three counties, west of Denver, CO. The mountain communities we serve are situated within the front range of the Rocky Mountains, offering much to residents and visitors alike. Housing costs continue to increase here, making a home purchase out of reach for many individuals and families. Blue Spruce Habitat serves community members in the 35%-80% AMI, and through our partnering with them, they're able to achieve their dream of home ownership.
    Currently, we are building two single family homes in the rural mountain Town of Empire in historic Clear Creek County. Upon completion, we'll continue with two more homes in Empire, and begin 8 townhomes in Idaho Springs. Every new home creates long range opportunities for families to thrive, obtain greater financial stability and further become part of this great mountain area.
