Join the Extollo team and gain a unique opportunity to equip Haitians in the construction industry through the development and construction of tilt up concrete houses, and various carpentry projects. Extollo International is a social-good business that operates a construction training center in Haiti and is in the process of introducing tilt up technology to Haiti by first developing and building prototype concrete tilt up houses.
We’re looking for a working Carpenter foreman/teacher of high character who loves adventure, is experienced in Tilt-up construction, and enjoys working with their hands to teach and equip others so they can reach their full potential. This person(s) will work with Sherman Balch of Balch Enterprises, a Licensed California General contractor for over 40 years, specializing in design/build commercial & industrial building. He is a 29-year member of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association and a recipient of The Peter Courtois Memorial Award.
Extollo offers a compensation package that includes comfortable housing, all utilities including internet, 24-hour security, free lunch each weekday, use of an Extollo vehicle (shared), and a competitive salary. Those semi retired or fully retired may find this to be a great opportunity to share their experience with those who need it the most.
We are looking for professionals who can give anywhere from 2 to 26 weeks at a time, and ideally travel to our campus in Haiti a few times a year to keep continuity. Anyone new to Extollo will first live/work on campus for 2 weeks so that they can get an honest taste of what it's like without making a longer time commitment.
For those up for the challenge, this may be the most difficult, fulfilling, and rewarding work you will ever do. Join us in bringing the benefits of tilt up construction to the nation of Haiti and give those living in extreme poverty a better future.
