Project REBUILD’s Modified Schedule due to COVID-19

Updated 6/1/2020

After being away from our campus and working remotely for nearly twelve weeks, we returned to REBUILD on June 1st with a hybrid model on onsite training and remote learning. Our members started to come back and will continue for the next three weeks in phases. Those that have not returned yet are expected to work from home with all four days of programming offered in-person and via Google Meets video calls.

While we’d love to see all of you, we are asking that anyone not actively a part of the program to give us some time. It’s exciting for us to return, but there is also some anxiety surrounding the shift. Things look and feel different, and we all need to get used to it before we ask others to. We have put a great deal of thought into procedures that keep everyone safe. Note that if you must come to one of our sites, you will have your temperature taken and be asked to complete a self-observation questionnaire, you will be asked to wear a face covering, you will need to abide by social distancing and signage, and you must wash or sanitize your hands regularly. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call the office.

Have you ever wondered how you can help Project REBUILD students? There are several ways and here’s one of them… Be a Mentor! 

Project REBUILD is launching a new mentoring program for our students, who are 16-24 years old. We are looking for mentors to connect with our students for 1- 5 hours each week.

You can be a mentor.

You can change a student’s life.

As a mentor, you can change the direction of your young person’s life by merely being present.
You can expand your networking and professional skills by joining our mentor network.
Coaches, teachers, and co-workers have mentored you. Now you can pass it on.
Your skills, experience, and friendship will help a young woman or man become ready to succeed in the workforce or in college. All of our mentoring will be structured activities at convenient times for your schedule.
Contact the office at  (330) 588-3205, option #2 or jjames@projectrebuild.org for more information.
