SBP is seeking passionate leaders from across the country to join in our efforts to return hard working Americans displaced by disaster to their homes. SBP recruits exceptional high school and college graduates, talented professionals and dedicated retirees who are ready to commit themselves to 5-10 months of service that will meet the needs of American citizens impacted by disasters.

AmeriCorps members serve in virtually all facets of SBP’s operation, so you will have the opportunity to gain a variety of skill sets according to your professional goals. Typical AmeriCorps positions with SBP include Client Service Coordinators, Construction Site Supervisors, Volunteer Coordinators, and Supply and Logistics positions. Our AmeriCorps team members come from a variety of backgrounds and many are young women who see SBP as a safe and supportive environment for building a career in the typically male-dominated construction/disaster recovery industry.
