Individual Building Volunteer Opportunities
We build homes and we want your help! DC Habitat’s construction crew utilizes volunteers each Wednesday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., year-round. Though we schedule team build groups to volunteer on a majority of these workdays, we try to reserve Saturdays throughout the year specifically for individual volunteers. We also schedule individuals on other days as space is available. We welcome your participation whether you are an experienced builder or you don’t know a sixteen-penny nail from a spackling knife!
NOTE: Volunteers should only report to the construction site when they have received confirmation from DC Habitat staff (phone or email) that they are scheduled for the given date.
Volunteer Crew Leaders commit to volunteering 3-4 days a month for at least six months and work closely with our construction supervisors. You will gain construction and leadership skills and collaborate with many exciting people through this unique leadership experience. As you gradually gain experience and skills as a Potential Crew Leader, you and the staff will jointly determine whether you are ready to accept additional responsibilities in a crew, depending on the projects and your demonstrated proficiency. Then the staff will rely on you to supervise a small group of volunteers to increase DC Habitat’s volunteer capacity and help us to build more homes!
