Global Village volunteer program

Experience another culture, make a difference in the lives of others and create a true global village of love, community, homes and hope.

Join a Global Village volunteer team and build decent, affordable shelter in destinations throughout the world. As a Global Village volunteer, you will work alongside members of the host community to build or renovate homes.

You will learn about poverty housing, development challenges and Habitat’s ministry and mission to help eradicate them. The funds you raise help build decent shelter in the country you visit and support the Global Village program.
