WORK WITH US
Over the last few years, the world has had a hard lesson in adapting to meet the challenges at hand, and Community Rebuilds is no exception. We operate at the forefront of a host of critical social issues, working within the bounds of a higher building demand, climate crisis mitigation, and a constantly shifting sociocultural relationship to labor while simultaneously navigating USDA program requirements. With one eye on the climate crisis and the other on the housing crisis, we are thrilled to introduce new programming which will allow us to confidently meet all of these challenges head on while maintaining our core values.

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 partners with AmeriCorps VISTA and State to offer positions both in the office and on our build site. AmeriCorps members serve full time for one year, and receive benefits such as a living stipend, End of Service Segal Education Awards, and more. Information about AmeriCorps and member benefits can be found at the link at the bottom of this page.
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.
