If you have interest, please contact Charles Frenkel, Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com or 646-779-8857. When you respond, please let us know the kind of relevant experience you have, especially in terms of managing groups. Habitat NYC and Westchester is looking for Volunteer Site Leaders (or VSLs) who can manage a small group of volunteers (of up to five people) on our construction and community painting sites as they go through their activities. We have been doing gut-and-rehab projects on future single-family homes in southeastern Queens (around Jamaica), landscaping in Brooklyn, and we will soon be painting indoor community space in Harlem and Queens. In the summer outdoor murals are a possibility. Your main responsibilities as a Volunteer Site Leader will be to: Greet volunteers. Assist head Site Leader in the monitoring of volunteer activities. Assist in the organization of materials on-site. Assist in maintaining a safe and clean site. Monitor and ensure volunteers are equipped with proper protective gear including PPE. Since we rely on VSLs to help manage events, you must be certain that you can attend any events you commit to. Community Preservation Participation (CPP): includes painting, landscaping, doing small repairs The hours are from 8 am to 3 pm. Help is needed throughout the month. We have volunteers from community groups and corporations coming out Tuesday through Saturday every week. But our greatest need is Tuesday - Friday. Comfort with the painting process, from taping and priming, to applying the final coats is a plus. Construction Our construction projects typically occur in the first full week of each month (Monday - Friday), with some special builds at other times of the month. Due to the current cold weather, work scope will be very limited, but opportunities should pick up in the spring. The hours are 8 am to 4 pm. Comfort with using common construction tools is desired. Recent/current tasks include laying sheetrock and installing insulation. Past activities have been: clearing and grubbing of the property, interior demolition, and construction fence building. Your assistance will greatly help the volunteers have a fun, productive, safe, and meaningful day, and help Habitat ensure that the projects are completed with quality, and also on time and within budget.

Habitat NYC and Westchester considers an individual fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series of COVID vaccine, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's vaccine. Masks are to be worn on site if a minimum distance of 6 feet between people is not possible.
