How can I volunteer with Habitat?
We have many ways for you to volunteer – from building Habitat homes locally and globally, sitting on a board, or helping at a Habitat ReStore.
Under the supervision of the build coordinator, Crew Leaders will work with multiple skilled volunteers who can construction day. Crew Leaders have four basic responsibilities: providing on-the-job training and supervision for semi-skilled and unskilled volunteers; ensuring necessary tools are on site for specific tasks; maintaining safety, including the safe use of equipment, protective measures for workers, pacing workers, etc.; and maintaining quality. Crew leaders, themselves should perform tasks that require a high level of skill. Crew leaders also should be able to quickly assess the abilities of volunteers, teach crew members proper construction techniques, answer their questions and show patience.
We are always looking for construction volunteers with a wide range of skills and skill levels (trades people, skilled amateurs, eager helpers). We need volunteers who are willing to participate in: ICF installation, framing, siding, drywalling, painting, plumbing, roofing, flooring, cabinet installation, and much more.
