Volunteer

RTEBN has three main roles filled by individual volunteers:

House Captain

House Captains are responsible for leading a group of volunteers to execute a project’s scope of work. As the chief supervisor of the project, they assign tasks to specific volunteers and make sure they know what to do and how to do it. House Captains have significant experience with construction or home repair and project management.

First Mate

First Mates take the lead in recruiting and coordinating volunteers for the project as well as arranging for coffee, water, and lunch for the volunteers. They are also responsible for site administration, documentation, and safety monitoring. First Mates aren’t required to have any experience in home repair, though they should have a talent for communicating.

General Volunteer

You don't need to have professional skills in home repair or construction to help make a difference in someone's life! There’s plenty of work that anyone can do – both on the ground helping out with projects and by providing general organizational support. Whether you want to volunteer alone, with a friend, or as part of a group, we can use your help.

Sponsor Us

Why become a sponsor?

To Stand Out

 By sponsoring RTEBN, businesses set themselves apart from their competitors and establish themselves as supporters of safe, healthy homes for veterans, seniors, and people with disabilities.

To Engage your Community

Sponsoring a project shows that a business cares about their community and wants to contribute to improving it.

To Build your Team

Volunteering as a group gives employees the opportunity to feel proud to belong to their organization and provides opportunities for group members to see each other in a new light.

To Keep Good People

Businesses who bring employees to work on our projects keep their employees’ experiences fresh and satisfying by getting them out of the office and giving them an unusual focus.

RTEBN has five levels of sponsorship which allow us to work with organizations of any size. The level of sponsorship an organization chooses determines the size, type, and difficulty of the projects they will be assigned to work on, as well as the recognition and publicity they might receive.
