Opportunities for Individuals

Want to get involved but don’t know where to start? We welcome Construction Captains, skilled tradespeople, and generally handy people. Find your niche here.


If you have a construction background or are handy, volunteering is a great way to keep your skills sharp and give back to the community. RTP Construction Captains and skilled trades volunteers are vital to our work.

Construction Captains are compassionate problem-solvers and experienced project managers who meet with homeowners or nonprofit facility managers to scope project requirements and determine effective repair methods.

Skilled trades volunteers help project leaders by doing repair work prior to, during, and after general volunteer workdays. RTP projects are great places to network with contractors and other industry professionals

Site Volunteers

We also need volunteers with a wide range of skills. Can you rake or shovel? Do painting prep work? Capture photos of homeowners and volunteers in action? Use hand tools, like hammers handsaws, and drills? If so—you’re qualified!

Office/Warehouse/Special Initiatives

We rely on individual volunteers to help us to prepare for National Rebuilding Day and year-round repair projects. Volunteers help with community outreach, event organization, mailings, data entry, graphic design, event planning, and other projects depending on their skills, interests, and availability. We value the time, energy and experience that individuals bring to our organization and appreciate their desire to serve the community.
