Do you want to make a difference in the wake of Hurricane Idalia? If so, our service-minded AmeriCorps team needs your help to support disaster survivors!

Climate change is here, increasing the size and frequency of natural disasters and displacing over 15 million people each year. Hurricanes like Idalia, Michael, Maria, and Ian disproportionately affect underresourced communities, whose road to recovery often takes years. SBP is dedicated to shrinking the time between disaster and recovery, work that includes helping individual homeowners and communities rebuild after a disaster.

Take a gap year with us! Over the course of 10 months, you can help us rebuild homes, repair lives, and fortify families from reaching their breaking point. As an SBP AmeriCorps member, you can choose to directly assist in our construction and disaster deployment efforts, or choose to play a crucial role in coordinating services to disaster survivors.

The Role:

As a hybrid Client Service & Construction Coordinator you will play a fundamental role in maintaining the momentum of our operations by overseeing the construction progress of our clients' homes. You will be involved from start to finish, whether securing proper permits for each site, designing subcontractor schedules, or monitoring overall site progress.

In addition, you will be our clients' main point of contact throughout their time with SBP. You will serve as a liaison for disaster survivors, offering them support by assessing needs, providing referrals, and guiding the application and construction process. Your work will fortify these members of our community from reaching their breaking points.

Applying for jobs online can be overwhelming, but you can ensure a safe and successful job search by keeping in mind some essential elements. Contact the company to confirm that the job posting is legitimate and that they are hiring for the position. Always be cautious of job postings that promise large amounts of money for little work or experience, as they may be scams or fraudulent job opportunities. Keep in mind that legitimate job postings will not ask for personal information, such as your social security number or bank account information, upfront. Employers who do not conduct in-person or phone interviews may not be legitimate, so it's important to verify their authenticity before proceeding. Keep your finances safe by avoiding job postings that require you to use your personal bank account. Protect yourself from identity theft by being cautious with personal information. Before accepting any job offer, research the company thoroughly to ensure that it's a reputable and reliable organization. It's important to make sure you are on the authentic website to keep yourself safe. Be cautious of any job listing that requires you to pay for a 'background check.'
