We bring volunteers together to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Looking to volunteer and gain networking experience? Come out and meet others while volunteering on a Neighborhood Revitalization project, our new construction sites or more. All volunteers must be 16 or older.
We welcome your group to volunteer on our construction sites or a neighborhood revitalization project. From raising walls, painting, to minor repairs, there is a task for everyone. All volunteers must be 16 or older. No experience needed.
Are there any age requirements to volunteer?
Yes. All volunteers must be at least 16 years old, no exceptions. Some tasks have an 18+ policy. Task restrictions for 16 & 17-year-old volunteers:
- Cannot work at heights 6 feet & above
- Cannot use power tools
Only individuals age 16 or older are allowed on the build site, no exceptions.
Is construction experience needed in order to volunteer?
No, not at all! Previous experience never hurts, but it isn’t necessary. All construction sites have a site supervisor that will provide all of the on-the-job training needed for the day’s tasks.
What kinds of tasks are done by volunteers?
Construction volunteers typically help with one or more of the following job tasks: framing walls, installing siding, hanging drywall, caulking, priming, painting, kitchen and bathroom remodels, landscaping, and so much more.
Will there be water and food provided?
Water is provided on-site. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to reduce waste and ensure proper hydration. Lunch is not provided during the volunteer shift. Volunteers can bring a bagged lunch, go off-site during the lunch break or arrange to have food delivered to the site.
Are construction shifts rain or shine?
Unless you hear otherwise from a Habitat Orlando & Osceola staff member, plan to volunteer rain or shine. Site supervisors can often adjust tasks to accommodate for inclement weather.
Do I need to bring tools with me?
All necessary tools and safety gear will be provided by Habitat Orlando & Osceola. If preferred, you may bring your own. Please label all personal tools with your name.
Can I complete my Court-Ordered community service with Habitat Orlando & Osceola?
At this time, we are no longer approving court-ordered community service.
