BRG Is Recruiting New Board Members

Incorporated in February of 2020, BRG has established the organizational, strategic and intellectual infrastructure to plan and launch no-cost and low-cost programs throughout Western Mass. As our organization prepares to move past the initial start up phase and scale up our activities, seek major funding, and hire staff we are looking for three new Board members – a Treasurer, Communications Chair, and Grants and Fundraising Chair – who can help shape the organization as we take it to the next level.


If you are interested in joining our Board: Send a resume, statement of interest, and professional references to Logan McFadden at logan@buildrepairgrow.org. Interested candidates are welcome to call Logan at 413-200-856 or email with any additional questions about the organization or board.


Build Repair Grow Treasurer/Board Member

Build Repair Grow (BRG), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is seeking a Treasurer who can help take our organization to the next level. The Treasurer will manage and oversee the financial affairs of the organization and serve as a full voting member of our Board of Directors. This position may be virtual: It is not necessary for the Treasurer to reside in Massachusetts.


BRG teaches young people how to grow and cook food, basic carpentry, sewing, and bike repair. We provide young people with training in practical skills critical for building individual resiliency, problem-solving, and self-sufficiency while promoting community health. Our programs were developed with a focus on in-person, hands-on learning, but due to the current pandemic, we have pivoted to a take home project kit program called BRG in a Box which includes online instructional videos. Learn more about our organization and programs at www.buildrepairgrow.org
