What will you do?

The Habitat AmeriCorps program hosts AmeriCorps National members as well as AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) members. The simplest way to understand the difference between these two roles is that our National members provide direct support (they often serve at our home building sites), whereas our VISTA members provide indirect support (they often serve in office roles). With either program, Habitat AmeriCorps has a variety of positions available to suit all interests and skill sets.

Benefits of AmeriCorps service

The benefits of service differ between the AmeriCorps National and VISTA programs, but both include the following:

  • Living allowance during service (minimum of $17,600 – varies dependent on program and service location).
  • Segal Education Award of $6,895, upon successful completion of service.
  • Forbearance for most federally-guaranteed student loans.
  • Health care benefits and enrollment in Employee Assistance Plan.
  • Personal and medical leave.
  • Child care benefits, if you qualify.

Minimum Requirements

Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, national or lawful permanent resident at least 18 or older and have a high school diploma or GED.

  • Are passionate about serving the community through direct service.
  • Demonstrate respect for diversity of opinion, experience, and background.
  • Desire to gain hands-on experience in the affordable housing and nonprofit sector.

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanityfounded in 1976, is a global, Christian-based nonprofit organization that grew out of an intentionally multi-racial community in rural Georgia. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat brings together people of all faiths and people of no faith to build homes, communities and hope. Working alongside each other, we help families and individuals build and improve places to call home and achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Habitat seeks individuals who have a willingness to affirm these principles and values.

At Habitat for Humanity International, we embrace a history rooted in creating equity and take our mission seriously by courageously committing to a culture and workplace where all staff feel safe, welcome, visible, respected, supported and valued. As an equal opportunity employer, we realize that our success depends upon building an inclusive workforce of diverse perspectives and encourage people of varied races (which is inclusive of traits historically associated with race, including, but not limited to, protective hairstyles and hair texture), ethnicities, national origins, tribes, religions, ages, gender identities and expressions, genders, sexual orientations, marital statuses, disabilities, veteran/reserve national guard statuses, socio-economic statuses, thinking and communication styles to work with us.

We also require that all staff take seriously their ethical responsibilities to safeguarding our intended beneficiaries, their communities (especially children), and all those with whom we work. In line with the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse, all staff must pass a thorough background screening and will be held accountable to upholding our policies around ethical behavior, including safeguarding and whistleblowing.
