Many community construction projects in San Jose struggle for funding and access to labor and materials. However, local organizations harness the power of building volunteers and donations to pick up these projects for the benefit of the neighborhood and the people who live there.
Your support will help to breathe new life into communities and enable initiatives to carry out their work in creating healthy, vibrant spaces. You’ll take the lead from a local foreman who will provide you with direction and guidance.
This project is well suited to energetic volunteers who love a challenge and are willing to work hard. You can expect to be supporting the renovation of childcare centers and local clinics, repainting community centers and assisting with landscaping or gardening.
As you will be volunteering alongside a local construction worker, you don’t need to have previous experience with construction work to join this project. It’s important to have good energy levels, a reasonable level of fitness and dedication to your work - this will go a long way to ensuring you get the most out of your volunteer project.
Please note that the Construction and Renovation project has an extra cost of $75 per week for supervision, materials and the logistics involved in this project. This amount will be included in the Program Fee quoted to you by IVHQ when you apply.Apply now
