ORGANIZATION: Community Rebuilds

Image_202203210948

Live in Moab, UT and learn to build high performance homes for low income residents of Moab.

This opportunity is available now.

We have openings now in our Spring internship class. This internship is available now, with a flexible start date in April through the end of June, 2022.

Program Structure

CR invites up to 10 student interns to build sustainable low carbon homes under the direction of a licensed contractor and natural building experts. Interns will install bales, apply a variety of natural plasters, install counter tops, and learn about electrical, plumbing, solar photovoltaics and permaculture, and take part in many other activities necessary to the completion of a home.

Our internship program consists primarily of onsite, hands-on learning, the experience is occasionally supplemented with workshops, conferences, and field trips. Interns will receive housing in a private room in our two story straw bale bunkhouse in Moab, and a modest food stipend in addition to the education in exchange for their labor.

Interns work together onsite and live together in a home provided by CR. They get to know our selected homeowners well as they work with them side by side in the creation of their home. Interns have many opportunities to enjoy and experience Moan, make new friends, and invest a little piece of themselves into our communities. These partnerships are important to our organization, which is based on the understanding that we are all neighbors ready to support each other and make our community better.

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION is to build energy-efficient housing, provide education on sustainability and improve the housing conditions of the workforce through an affordable program.

Description

At Community Rebuilds we aid income-qualifying families in building AFFORDABLE and energy-efficient straw bale homes, and we are TRAINING young emerging professionals to build LOW CARBON MODERN NATURAL BUILDINGS. We are a nonprofit that provides assistance during all stages of the build. Before breaking ground we act as a free consultant for interested families, by connecting them with low interest rate loans and supplying architectural plans free of cost. During the build we manage the build process and budget, and we provide a labor force of unpaid volunteer interns. After construction is complete we provide our families continued education in home maintenance and repair.



With this program we build affordable housing for the community and provide valuable EDUCATION AND SKILLS IN NATURAL BUILDING to every person involved: homeowners, interns, CR staff and volunteers. Our interns participate from foundation-to-finish working under the direction of our expert natural building instructors. And...we are the only organization that offers this type of education free of cost.
