Two local agencies want to hire and train young adults for jobs in construction and clean energy, according to an announcement issued Monday.
Bend-area Habitat for Humanity and the Heart of Oregon Corps are looking for eight Clean Energy Service AmeriCorps crew members ages 18-24 to work on weatherization and construction sites alongside construction professionals and volunteers.
Participants earn a $500 biweekly living allowance. Those who complete a six-month program and 900 hours of service earn an additional $2,775 AmeriCorps education award for use in courses beyond high school.
Applications are available at www.bendhabitat.org. They can also be picked up at Heart of Oregon Corps, 1291 N.E. Fifth St., Bend, which is located in the portables at Marshall High School.
