Do I need to have construction skills?
No, we do not require previous construction experience - just willingness to work hard, learn, and be flexible. But, if you do have construction experience we encourage you to utilize it on site with us.
All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Youth under 18 must complete the Minor Waiver Form signed by a parent/guardian.
What will I be doing?
It all depends! We appreciate your flexibility and openness to all aspects of building; you'll find out about the day's projects once you arrive at site. What we're working on depends on the current phase of house construction, so you could be doing anything from demolition to drywall hanging to cleaning. Your flexibility is the most important thing to bring with you to the work site....remember that all jobs are equally crucial to a well-built Habitat house.
We work from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. We ask that volunteers arrive on-site promptly at 8:00 am. Volunteer Groups, depending on size, may split a morning and afternoon shift. To have a quality experience, please be sure to register, take the online safety training and sign/return the liability waiver BEFORE arriving. You can find these materials here.
What do I bring for lunch?
Nothing! We have generous Meal Volunteers that will provide you lunch. There will be water provided, but feel free to bring your own if you choose.
Do you ask for a donation when we volunteer?
We do not require that volunteers make donations. Pledging a donation helps us to buy the materials and supplies that you will be using on your build day. Ultimately, contributions help us build more homes for families in our community. Donors are recognized.
When do you build?
We build on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. Weather permitting.
