House Captain - Home Renovation Project

Rebuilding Together Nashville (RTN) seeks skilled construction volunteers to work in partnership with RTN staff to prepare for and lead home renovation projects. House Captains should be comfortable with executing a variety of construction tasks and with leading unskilled volunteers to complete construction projects. 

RTN partners with low-income homeowners who need improvements at their homes to ensure their homes are safe and healthy environments for all household members.  Homeowners must meet basic eligibility and income requirements, and a household member must qualify as a senior citizen, disabled or a veteran.  RTN recruits semi-skilled and unskilled volunteers to complete home improvement projects.  House Captains are matched with specific renovation projects based on their availability and skills.  Work scopes vary based on each home's and homeowner's needs.  Common home improvement tasks include building or improving wheelchair ramps, decks or railings; repairing water damaged cabinets and flooring; installing light fixtures or new flooring; plumbing repairs and upgrades; energy-efficiency improvements such as installing insulation and air-sealing; and painting. 

RTN completes approximately 25 projects each year.  Projects are usually completed between March and November and may occur on weekdays or weekends.  Most projects require a five to six hour commitment.

When you express interest in this volunteer opportunity, you will receive a follow up phone call and screening from RTN staff members who will provide more specific details about the opportunity.
