Help us Help our Neighbors

Have you seen the “Giving Gracious Groceries” Box, yet? Our Youth Leadership Council (YLCs) wanted a means to help our neighbors with groceries. With funding from Youth Service America and the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, they were able to secure funds to build a box that debuted to our neighbors at the beginning of July. 

Now, we need your help to keep it full, and there are several different ways you can do that.

Project REBUILD’s Schedule due to COVID-19

Updated 7/6/2020

After being away from our campus and working remotely for nearly twelve weeks, we returned to REBUILD on June 1st with a hybrid model of onsite training and remote learning. Our members started to come back on June 1st and were all back by June 15th but continue to work two days per week online and remotely. The two days spent on-site are in small groups and on our worksite or the Construction Lab.

While we’d love to see all of you, we are asking that anyone not actively a part of the program to continue to refrain from visiting. We have put a great deal of thought into procedures that keep everyone safe. Note that if you do visit one of our sites, you will have your temperature taken, be asked to complete a self-observation questionnaire, be asked to wear a face covering, abide by social distancing and signage, and 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.
