Project REBUILD’s Modified Schedule due to COVID-19

Effective 3/23/2020

Responding to Governor’s DeWine’s recommendation, beginning on 3/16/2020, our organization began a modified working arrangement in response to the Coronavirus Virus. Online lessons were created, a private Facebook group was utilized more, conference calls started, and our staff was working primarily in the office practicing social distancing and safe health practices.

Effective 3/24/2020, our staff will be working 100% from home to help lessen the spread of the virus to themselves and their loved ones. We’ve worked hard to make remote working possible and are hopeful that we can continue to meet the needs of our young people and be accessible to them from a distance. Daily video calls are happening with both the staff and our members. We continue to have online lessons and case management check-ins.

We hope that on April 6th, we will all be together again at our training facility and can resume life as we knew it before all of this. We send wishes to all of you of health and peace as we all navigate these challenging times.

Have you ever wondered how you can help Project REBUILD students? There are a number of 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 simply by being present.
You can expand your networking and professional skills by joining our mentor network.
You have been mentored by coaches, teachers, and co-workers. 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.
