Volunteer in other ways


There are opportunities to volunteer in non-building activities. We are looking for volunteers who want to apply their unique skills in program or resource development, research, communications, as well as other administrative roles. There are more than 1 billion people worldwide who are in need of safe, secure and affordable homes. To create lasting housing solutions, we need devoted and committed volunteers like you.


Individuals who volunteer to take leadership roles in their local Habitat for Humanity office are especially vital to success of Habitat’s work. Such roles include serving formally on a national organization’s board of directors or as an advisor or connecting with potential donors or high-level government officials. Check with the national organization where you are located for opportunities.


Students can learn how Habitat for Humanity operates and gain valuable work experience by volunteering  at a Habitat office for a period of time.

Youth engagement
