HRRC is always looking for new instructors
As fall approaches, the Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) is planning a large selection of home improvement classes for inside and outside the house. HRRC's classes help homeowners plan for insulation and window projects, and teach them how to prep their yards and lawns for the autumn and winter months, among many other topics.
HRRC is constantly on the lookout for volunteer instructors for home repair classes. The organization's first-rate, newly revamped teaching workshop gives instructors an opportunity to impart their wisdom to others, and the lot next to the HRRC building has become a great location for teaching classes on yards and home exteriors.
Those who possess the skills needed to fix things around the house don’t always realize how lucky they are, and instructing at HRRC is one way for them to see how useful their skills can be on a practical level.
Leading an HRRC class, or a series of classes, is also a great opportunity for local business owners and contractors to meet prospective clients, as approximately 1,000 people enroll in HRRC's home repair classes over the course of a year. Word-of-mouth can be a valuable tool for any contractor.
Retirees often make the best instructors. So, if you’ve done this type of work in the past, HRRC would love to have you. It can be a terrific chance to give back to the community and pass along some of your knowledge.
In the end, it’s a win-win-win opportunity for area residents, HRRC, and the volunteer teachers themselves.
If you or someone you know would be a good fit for this volunteer opportunity, contact HRRC at 216-381-6100, ext. 16, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
