Make a Difference Together: Become a Journeyman

At Rebuilding Together, we work with people who have volunteered on one of our projects and want to do more.  We teach them how to work with and lead teams to finish up uncompleted tasks or take on new ones.  We call these valuable volunteers Journeymen.  Being a Journeyman is easy to fit in to your schedule, and these projects take only one day or less.

Take the next step in volunteering by finding out how you can make an even bigger difference by becoming a Journeyman Volunteer today!  We host a Journeyman Volunteer Night each month at our warehouse (2627 Fourth Street SE Minneapolis).  This event is an opportunity to learn more about becoming a Journeyman and upcoming volunteer opportunities, receive training on specific tasks and meet staff and other volunteers.  We have Journeyman Volunteer Events scheduled for October 25th and November 15th.  Email Kelly at to register for this event or for more information.
