OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

  • Natural Building Internship - TO BE ANNOUNCED. When projects allow a foundation to finish build, we will once again offer our 5-month internship program. We are currently called to action and scaling up to help with the housing crisis in the communities we serve. All of our projects will feature natural building techniques, always, and all volunteers will get their hands muddy. We are extremely focused on building for climate change, carbon accounting, and incorporating as many carbon sequestering materials as we can in an effort to store the amount of carbon our buildings generate in the goal of having carbon-neutral buildings. With this focus, making adjustments to our standard building model can create more opportunity for additional carbon storage. One example is using siding made from upcycled cedar telephone poles on the exterior of our buildings versus natural plasters.

  • Learn about our current Builder B.E.E.S. work exchange program here.

  • If you have experience in leadership or building, consider an AmeriCorps Building Apprentice Position. We also offer opportunities for capacity building through the AmeriCorps VISTA program. Find more info on what's currently available here.​

  • Community Rebuilds has created dozens of work exchange opportunities and Office Internships that are custom to interests and passions of individuals as they align with the needs of our mission and programs. If you are interested in working with us on a special project or program, or as part of an academic fulfillment, please send a letter of intent and resume to rikki@communityrebuilds.org.
