year of service
Want to get involved with Habitat's work beyond the occasional volunteer day? Want to experience a year (or two) growing your skills and connections with the people of the greater Cincinnati area? AmeriCorps members spend 10.5 months serving in various roles across our organization and our city to help make affordable housing possible.
An opportunity like no other
AmeriCorps members contribute a year of service and in return receive a modest living stipend, a basic health insurance plan, an education award, job training, and personal and professional growth opportunities. You will leave your year of service not only with new transferable skills, but also with a sense of community that comes with no other employment opportunity.
