Habitat for Humanity offers international volunteer programs for people who would like to contribute to our mission of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Families all around the world partner with us to build decent, sustainable homes and stronger, more stable communities.

Long-term volunteer opportunities

We design and oversee international trips for individuals looking to immerse themselves in a project or a country for between three months and one year. Trips of this length allow individuals to develop a deep understanding of the culture, community and country where they are volunteering, and they are highly rewarding. We are looking for people with a range of skills, not just in housing or construction.

If you would like to take this kind of volunteer trip, please check out our International Volunteer Program page.
