Position Construction Crew - Kehl St., Kitchener Build
Location 242 Kehl Street, Kitchener
Description For the build to be a success, we are seeking volunteers to help out each day. No experience is necessary - just enthusiasm and the ability to work in a team-based environment. There are a wide range of volunteer tasks which are guided by Team Leaders. We build all year in order to ensure we can start new blocks of units as well as complete the work on previously built units to prepare them for home ownership. Tasks include: insulating interior walls, putting up vapour barriers and hanging drywall; installing trim on the doors; painting; installing laminate floors; and working on cosmetic details that augment the house's look and feel. Please follow the link to register using our online calendar. The minimum time commitment is one day.
