This week we are giving Sycamore House Partner Organizations some love! Check out our posts to learn where and how the corps members serve.
William Lee is working at Habitat for Humanity this year. He says…
Habitat for Humanity “Seek[s] to put God’s love into action. Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.” The homes that we rehab are sold to homeowners at a 0% mortgage and during the building process the homeowners are required to contribute a certain number of hours towards the construction of their home.
At Habitat my role is a little bit of everything. Officially, I’m the Construction Volunteer Coordinator and a Crew Leader. Unofficially, I do most everything. Mailing mortgage coupons, inputting donations, answering the phone, organizing community engagement opportunities, facilitating communication between the different facets of the affiliate. I also email and call volunteers and then teach them how to use tools and perform different tasks onsite.
I’m always watching the Interim Executive Director, Yinka, to see how he handles different situations and how I can utilize some of his strategies to improve my own leadership ability.
