    Boston Building Resources

    http://www.bostonbuildingresources.com/ Organization Address: 100 Terrace St, Boston, MA 02120 Organization’s Mission: The Reuse Center at Boston Building Resources is a charitable nonprofit that accepts donations of new and gently used materials for resale. It opened its doors in 1993 and was known until recently as the Building Materials Resource Center. Anyone can shop at the Reuse Center. Additional discounts are given to Plus members—people who meet our income guidelines, as well as any charitable nonprofit organization. Standard members and the public will pay a slightly higher price on Reuse Center items, but the extra income helps this nonprofit to be sustainable and grow. Volunteer Project: BBR is looking for 3 volunteers who are able to make it a strong commitment to the organization and the work that they do. They need volunteers who can guarantee that they have the time and dedication needed to attend EVERY shift because when volunteers miss or skip a shift it sets the organization back. They understand of the fact that the volunteers are students but they would prefer students who would only miss volunteering under more serious circumstances. BBR would also prefer (does not require) volunteers with either previous volunteer or professional experience. Volunteers will need to be open to getting dirty, lifting/carrying objects and talking with customers and relaying basic facts about the organization (the volunteer position is not really a customer service one but occasionally volunteers will be approached by customers). Preference is given to volunteers who are go with the flow and comfortable with being on ladders and operating small power tools. There is training to use tools but BBR would like volunteers who are open and comfortable with using tools. As BBR is a business, volunteers would get to learn some of the basic business aspects of the organization (pricing, market value, how to operate certain tools etc.). That is the main take away. It is a big commitment, however, which volunteers must know beforehand.
