Construction Volunteers

Volunteering on a job site as an individual is a rewarding way to serve our community while learning construction skills and building meaningful relationships. Under the supervision of a qualified crew leader, our construction volunteers work alongside our partner families in our Homeownership & Building and Home Preservation programs.

Construction volunteers are welcome to serve at any time during the construction process, and may perform a variety of construction jobs during their shift. Safety training, jobsite tools, and materials are provided, just wear work-site appropriate attire and bring your enthusiasm!

Every project is supervised by a qualified Construction Manager or Crew Leader Construction Managers must be licensed contractors, and Crew Leaders must have experience in construction and home repair.
