This job is great for: Individuals

AmeriCorps is a national service movement that unites Americans seeking to improve economically challenged neighborhoods. AmeriCorps is not a job, but rather, a service opportunity in which Americans dedicate a year or more of their lives in order to help meet the critical needs of others.

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity is one of over 40 Habitat for Humanity AmeriCorps sites around the country. Each year we hire an AmeriCorps team that is dedicated to making a difference and is willing to commit 11 months of service to the organization in the office and on the construction site.
