Rebuild Joplin is a non-profit agency partnered with the St. Bernard Project to provide long-term recovery and rebuilding systems. We exist to ensure that Joplin’s residential recovery operates at optimal efficiency. Through directed and coordinated services, Rebuild Joplin ensures that tornado-impacted residents have access to affordable and safe housing, delivered through coordinated, efficient and ever-improving construction systems and partnerships.
Volunteers will literally help rebuild a family’s home. This may include hanging insulation or drywall, mudding, sanding, texturing, priming, painting, laying floors, and/or hanging trim, doors and baseboard.
During spring break, hundreds of student volunteers from across the United States participate in United Way Alternative Spring Break. This unique volunteer opportunity presents college students with the means to help in their community and make a difference in the lives of local families. In 2013 student volunteers in northern New Jersey will help improve education opportunities for children in Newark.
Volunteers help make a difference for the children at the Central Ward Boys & Girls Club. Participants will work directly with children at the Boys & Girls club in the after-school program. Volunteers will act as tutors and mentors for local children who need it the most, and provide some building maintenance support to this outdated facility.
