Self-motivated, self-starting individual needed to serve long-term (January 2014-December 2014) in the Disaster Relief program of Christian Appalachian Project. The Disaster Relief caseworker plays a key administrative role in the program by serving on local disaster relief committees, attending trainings, and training others. When disaster strikes, the Member will be involved in all stages of disaster response within Kentucky and other Appalachian states: preparation and loading of materials, relief work (mucking houses, distributing supplies), volunteer coordination, and clean-up and unloading of supplies and materials. This position requires a volunteer who is independent, energetic, organized, likes to travel and has superior communication skills. Must be 21 or older with a good driving record. Experience in construction and/or disaster relief response a plus.
Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) is a nonprofit human services organization serving people in need in Appalachia. Our programs are made possible in large part because of our corps of 50-60 full-time volunteers who serve for a year. Long-term volunteers with CAP make a commitment to Service, Community, and Spirituality and receive room and board, a monthly stipend, health insurance, vacation time, a potential AmeriCorps Education Award of up to $5,550, and potential student loan deferment. Applicants must be accepted as a CAP Volunteer first, then may enroll as an AmeriCorps Member for eligible positions.
