Habitat for Humanity: Volunteer Guidelines

No construction experience is needed, just a willingness to work hard and to learn!

What to wear:

  • Sturdy shoes that are closed toe and heel (work boots preferred, sneakers are acceptable)
    • Crocs, Keens, Ballet Flats, UGG Boots, etc. are not safe
    • You may be sent home if inappropriate footwear is worn
  • Clothing you don't mind getting torn or dirty
  • Dress for the weather and wear layers. In the winter, most work is inside, but there will be projects or supplies outside at times, be prepared

What to bring:

  • Water Bottle - drinking water will be available
  • Tools and protective gear are provided, if you'd like to bring your own, please make sure they're labeled
  • Please bring your own gloves!

Youth Guidelines:
For safety reasons, youth under the age of 16 are not allowed to volunteer on an active construction site.  We require one adult leader (21+) for every group of four 16-18 year olds volunteering onsite.

Please remember that these are active construction sites.  Safe work sites will ensure a fun and productive day!
