FAQs for Volunteers
All hours are tracked by Volunteer Services in a central database. If you need a letter of recognition stating your volunteer hours please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Volunteers must first sign-in on our volunteer log. A safety meeting will begin shortly after your arrival, followed by a short prayer. The Site Superintendent will then divide volunteers up into small groups to conquer the day’s tasks. Volunteers need to have an ability to swing a hammer and a willingness to give back to their community! We will teach you the rest.
Please wear long pants and closed toed shoes. Bring a pair of work gloves and a water bottle. We will provide you with the tools for the day.
Habitat for Humanity does not provide lunch for volunteers so we suggest you bring your own. On occasion, people or groups will provide lunch for all volunteers so you may be surprised on certain build dates.
We ask that you bring your own water bottle to the build site. Habitat for Humanity does have water jugs for volunteers to refill their water bottles throughout the day.
Yes. Safety standards require that volunteers be 16 or older on construction sites and 18 or older in the Habitat Store. Volunteers aged 16 or 17 must have a Liability Form completed by a parent or legal guardian. While the majority of our volunteer opportunities are most appropriate for youth over the age of 16, we do encourage the involvement of all youth. There are many ways for young people to help the efforts of Habitat for Humanity.
