You do not need to be skilled – just energetic! We are recruiting volunteers for one week of active service in an area near you! Activities vary depending on location and construction schedules, but can include siding, roofing, framing, landscaping, painting and support.

The volunteer contribution is $450 per person which includes local transportation, room & board, materials, supplies, tools and site supervision. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, but 16 and 17 year olds are accepted if they are accompanied by their parent, legal guardian or an adult with a power-of-attorney to act on their behalf for the duration of the deployment. Individuals (or groups) are responsible to travel to the build city on their own, but ground transportation will be provided from the local airport(s) to the housing site. Because of the different locales this year, the work week varies as indicated below.
