Since 2013, Project REBUILD has been a YouthBuild AmeriCorps site and continues to serve our community in various ways. Project REBUILD members enrolled in AmeriCorps work towards earning 450 Service Hours during a twelve-month period and become eligible for an Education Award of over $1,600 to be used for post-secondary education. Project REBUILD provides many opportunities for members to earn their service hours, including through the rehabilitation of low and moderate-income housing.
In addition, Project REBUILD partners with area nonprofit agencies to create service opportunities that include deconstruction, neighborhood clean-ups, serving hot meals or preparing backpacks with food, and preparing for clothing giveaways.
