We're looking for a Construction Trainer who wants to give back to their community by teaching young people the skills necessary to construct single family homes and provides supportive coaching to encourage the development of youth's employment and interpersonal skills.

This position runs a crew of 6-8 trainees at a worksite, balancing operating a safe job site, teaching young people with no prior construction experience technical construction skills, finishing the project on schedule, and mentoring the trainees to develop good work habits and persist through personal challenges towards their long-term goals.

Program locations are in Sisters and Redmond, Oregon and worksites are in Sisters, Prineville, Madras, and/or Redmond (Construction Trainers drive youth to worksites in company rigs). The schedule is Monday-Friday, 40 hours a week, with 6.5 hours on the construction worksite training youth four days per week. The position is supervised by a Construction Manager and is part of a larger program staff team of 12 and a larger non-profit organization that operates 6 training programs.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated journey-man level experience in carpentry and technical skills in construction, with at least 1-3 years' experience of supervising/training others in the construction field. A commitment to safety and an ability to positively and professionally train, teach, coach, and mentor young people while meeting projects schedules is critical. The co-ed program serves diverse youth—including Latino, Native American, and other minority youth, and youth who experience disabilities. Applicants who represent these groups are encouraged to apply.
