Wanted: Volunteers and Crew Leaders for Nuestra Casa Work Days

Are you looking for a team-building activity? Need something to do on a Saturday that helps your community? Itching to put your construction skills to use? If you like to get involved in building projects, we’re looking for volunteers and crew leaders throughout the spring and summer.

The Nuestra Casa neighborhood center renovation project is underway. With about half the funding goal achieved so far, we’re ready to move forward with some key phases of construction. And we’re looking for help! As a collaborating partner on the project, Women’s Service Day is coordinating work days. But that doesn’t mean we’re only asking women to help. We’d love participation from both men and women for monthly work days this spring and summer. Timing will likely be about one Saturday a month, starting in late March. You’re welcome to commit to just one or several work days.

Volunteers
If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you. Please tell us a little about your skill set and availability using our online form. Once we’ve determined our volunteer pool, we’ll be in touch to make plans.

Crew Leaders
You can recruit your own crews or rely on the Women’s Service Day team to coordinate a team for you. Either way, please use our online form to sign up.

We’re looking for leaders who can:

  • Manage projects and people
  • Read architectural plans and converse in construction terms with builders
  • Act as liaison between builders and the volunteers
  • Implement construction plans with appropriate skills
  • Gather supplies and equipment needed for the day if not provided
  • Clearly communicate (with patience) to crews of volunteers
  • Handle any emergencies that may arise

NOTE: Due to budget constraints (because we’re still in the fundraising phase), the project may experience stops and starts. We can only spend what we have banked!
