Recruits can apply to our AmeriCorps program in one of two ways, through our Traditional and our ‘A-Team’ programs. Traditional members can serve a year at one affiliate as Volunteer Coordinators, Construction Assistants, Family Services Coordinators/Liaisons and/or to complete special projects. ‘A-Team’ members serve as a team as Construction Assistants and Volunteer Coordinators. These members are based at a main host site but also travel 1-2 weeks at a time for a build or special project.
Whether you serve as an ‘A-Team’ member or Traditional member, AmeriCorps and service in the Habitat for Humanity of Indiana program can be a rewarding and challenging experience. Habitat for Humanity of Indiana’s AmeriCorps program is a year commitment to service where we ask that members complete 1700 hours of service as well as their affiliate’s expectations from their start date until the following August 31st.
Members apply directly to the AmeriCorps Program Director or to their host site of choice. In either situation, recruits are prescreened by the Program Director with a primary phone interview and, if approved, receive a second interview with the host site affiliate(s). Applicants are matched with position types and host sites based on the skills they convey in their application and phone interview as well as the needs of the affiliates.
