Home Safety and Fire Prevention Team Lead

The Home Safety and Fire Prevention Program: In 2017, we launched our Home Safety and Fire Prevention program to continue and expand our efforts in promoting and maintaining affordable homeownership and safe and healthy housing for all by assuring simple home safety installations and holistic fire preparedness throughout the community. We are seeking a student leader to play a key role in administering this program on installation days throughout the fall semester. Through our Home Safety and Fire Prevention program, we engage volunteers to provide simple, yet critical, home safety installations for low-income households in Dutchess County. These installations revolve around six critical items, including ten-year lithium smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, motion-activated solar lights, LED light bulbs, and reflective house numbers alongside fire preparedness education. The homeowners that we serve ­– particularly elderly and low-income residents or those who reside in older housing stock – are at an even higher risk of inadequate home safety and fire protection, and our interventions assure that these needs are not overlooked or a cost burden. Since the program’s inception, we have provided home safety and fire prevention services for over 160 low-income households in Dutchess County, and our goal is to serve 125 homes this year. 

The Team Lead position: Rebuilding Together Dutchess County is looking for a passionate, organized, and dedicated student leader who will assume a coordination position for the Home Safety and Fire Prevention program. Alongside the AmeriCorps program coordinator, the candidate will be responsible for leading teams of volunteers on our installation days and documenting the services provided. This includes walk-through home safety reviews with homeowners, light volunteer training, homeowner education, and overseeing installations assuring corresponding documentation at each home. The position is best suited to 8-12 hours per week, allocated flexibly among Rebuilding Together Dutchess County’s offices hours, 9:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday through Friday, as well as project days on Saturdays. The intern position is non-paid and temporary for all candidates. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain experience in nonprofit management, volunteer coordination, affordable housing initiatives and basic repair work, as well as to network with local leaders and organizations, and create tangible change in the community.
