AmeriCorps House Captain
Rebuilding Together of Greater Charlotte (RTGC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission of repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives. RTGC brings our community together to address the affordable housing crisis, mobilizing contractors and volunteers from across the region to complete projects that make homes and communities safer and healthier for our neighbors.
Nothing is more satisfying than seeing your work have an immediate and direct impact on the problem you’re trying to solve. AmeriCorps House Captains measure their time with Rebuilding Together in the number of grab bars installed and injuries from falls prevented, weatherization projects completed and utility bills lowered, and wheelchairs ramps built and independence restored. They complete hands-on repairs as part of prep work or punch list for a project day. On project days, AmeriCorps House Captains lead volunteers from all backgrounds and skill levels to complete a variety of construction activities. Wherever possible, they teach and empower volunteers to learn new skills and safely implement them on the worksite.
