Build homes, community and hope in the heart of Massachusetts! Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester covers 42 cities and towns in Central Massachusetts with our home office being in the second largest in New England, Worcester! As an AmeriCorps member with MetroWest/Greater Worcester you’ll join an affiliate full of AmeriCorps alumni who are excited to be part of your journey. Members can expect to gain an in-depth knowledge of residential construction, task and volunteer management, public speaking and community development. Most importantly during a year of service with Habitat for Humanity MWGW members can expect to have FUN in a safe, comfortable environment. During members off hours they can explore the hiking trails of Mt. Wachusett, the diverse foodie culture of Worcester, visit varying cultural museums as well a botanical garden. Worcester is also just an hour away from Boston, Massachusetts, Providence Rhode Island and Nashua New Hampshire. Join our Habitat family and form lasting relationships all while creating affordable housing for children and families! 

The member serving in this role will be part of the AmeriCorps team that will give the necessary boost to significantly increase the number of families our affiliate is able to serve through our Critical Home Repair (CHR), Veteran Critical Home Repair (VCHR), A Brush With Kindness (ABWK), Rehab, and new construction projects. With the assistance of the AmeriCorps members serving in this role, we anticipate completing 1 home build, and starting 4 additional home build projects and 12 VCHRs/CHRs. A secondary goal of this position is to have members cultivate and train volunteers to act as site leaders. We view the construction crew leaders as integral to our goals of building more homes and better neighborhoods and communities throughout our service area.
