CONSTRUCTION VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers on the construction site. 95% of the labor on our homes is volunteer labor. There are various levels of involvement and no construction experience is necessary. Come learn something new!

Our volunteer construction schedule is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We start at 7:30am and end by 11:30pm. Snacks and water are provided on site.

CONSTRUCTION

  • Beginning site volunteer – Have you wanted to help but don’t know how? Do you want to learn more about home improvement? Well here’s how you get started. In this position you will assist in activities such as landscaping, laying sod, insulation, and painting. If you’re willing to learn and commit some regularity to volunteering, you will obtain the skills to advance to novice level of construction.
  •  Novice site volunteer – Have some skills but still want to learn more? This position includes assisting in framing, siding, building shed, and setting cabinets. If you’re willing to learn and commit some regularity to volunteering, you will obtain the skills to move up to advanced level of construction or lead a project of your own.
  • Advanced site volunteer – Have you done your fair share of weekend warrior projects? Are you interesting in sharing your construction skills by training others? This position is for you. You will assist in framing layout, assist in trim work, modifying counters, leading group projects, training new volunteers, and beginning crew leader. This is also a great way to build your resume if you are looking for construction supervisor leadership experience.
  • Construction/Contracting Professionals – If you’re a construction or contracting professional, we need your help! Not only can you help us complete homes for deserving families, you can help defray our costs by contributing specialty work such as plumbing, electrical, excavating, and cement work.

Group Opportunities: We are glad to accommodate volunteer groups upon request. Some examples of groups we have hosted are through churches, businesses, schools, and other organizations. Opportunities are subject to availability.
