  • ReSOURCE YouthBuild Burlington is seeing an AmeriCorps Job Site Assistant.

    The Job Site Assistant works side-by-side with our Job Site Supervisors leading small crews of our YouthBuild students in construction projects and activities.

    • Projects range from affordable-housing renovations to small-framed constructions (sheds, lean-to’s, cabins) to furniture.
    • On Fridays, the Job Site Assistant co-leads the crew on a service project with a different community partner every week, which may or may not involve construction.
    • Teaching construction and mentoring/counseling youth are equal parts of the job.
    • Timeframe = Full time, M-F 8:00am-3:30pm.
    • Location = Burlington, VT site. 339 Pine St.
