If you’re interested in volunteering with Rebuild Upstate but don’t want to recruit a group of people, don’t fret! We welcome all kinds of volunteers with open arms. Whether your skills lend themselves to more traditional office duties or you are a seasoned handyman and want to lead our Build Day groups, we have just the spot for you.
Explore our individual volunteer opportunities below. Then, contact our team to tell us a little bit about yourself and your area of interest. A volunteer coordinator will reach out to set up a one-on-one chat and walk through next steps. We want to make sure we find the best fit for you.
When you volunteer as an Office & Administrative Volunteer with Rebuild Upstate, you may gather needed information from our clients both before and after projects, greet office visitors, answer phone calls and take/deliver messages and other tasks as needed. These volunteers are often our first contact with clients and are crucial to our ability to help them. If you have a heart for organization and communication, this could be the fit for you.
If you’ve always been good with your hands and are confident in your ability to help with build projects like ramp builds, window replacements, and more, you’d make a great fit for our Handyman Club! You’ll need to have weekday availability, feel comfortable keeping an eye on worksite safety, be a problem solver, and enjoy working in small groups with other members of the club. Some of our Handyman Club teams volunteer the same day each week or month; others volunteer as time permits.
Rebuild Upstate’s Site Leaders serve as liaisons for our organization at the homes of neighbors in need during Build Days. As a Site Leader, you are responsible for managing the Build Day: handling tools, leading build projects, facilitating volunteer groups, teaching and empowering unskilled volunteers, and solving unexpected problems that might pop up on site.
Are you 55 or older? If you volunteer in Anderson County, your service can earn our program up to $1,000. Gas reimbursement and a gift card for lunch are available. This volunteer program is through the RSVP SeniorCorps grant, which funds service opportunities for older adults. All are welcome regardless of ability. Email Ryan to help us earn $1,000.
