Next Generation of Leaders
AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community. National Direct AmeriCorps members lead volunteer teams on every single house that we build and repair; VISTA members pave the way for future growth and service to more families.
Habitat Long Island is proud to host several AmeriCorps volunteers each year, encouraging service-learning while improving our programs and community.
Each year, Habitat Long Island recruits individuals to spend a year of service with us. This year we recruited 4 Construction Crew Leaders, 1 Resource Development VISTA and 1 Homeowner Services Coordinator.
