Would you recommend Habitat for Humanity of High Point, Archdale and Trinity?
I spent 11 months working for Habitat as an Americorps Construction Crew Leader. It was a valuable learning experience. I loved working with the volunteers and homeowners. Our site supervisor Robert was fantastic. He taught me many skills and improved the ones that I already possessed. He is very patient and kind, a joy to work with. I became more confident with each new challenge. I felt like my feedback was taken seriously and I improved productivity. It is hard work and you need to be in decent shape. There were some downsides of course but overall the good experiences outweighed those. My biggest complaint was my fellow Americorps member was unmotivated, lazy, and didn't even bother showing up the last month despite taking the check and free housing. When I made complaints to the volunteer coordinator Joyce they were brushed off and I felt like she was trying to punish me for bringing it up. That is why I ultimately decided to leave when my contract ended instead of reapplying.
