With the help of thousands of volunteers from every skill level and background, we have provided over 400 families with a hand-up into home ownership! In fact, in 2014, over 5,000 people (volunteers and partner families) contributed 14,800 volunteer shifts - that's nearly 95,000 hours!
You can help us continue our progress by volunteering your time at one of our current build projects or in our ReStores. Our build sites are open Tuesday to Saturday from January until mid-December (excluding holidays) and our Edmonton ReStores are open 9-5 Monday to Saturday.
Volunteers must have the following abilities to work on our construction sites or in our ReStores:
We are currently recruiting volunteers across northern Alberta. View our Where We Build page to see exactly where!
We also have exciting volunteer opportunities in our ReStores, our retail outlets that sell new and gently-used building materials and home improvement items to fund Habitat's administration costs.
Habitat's Adopt-a-Day program is an excellent way to get out of the office for fresh air, exercise and to build bonds with coworkers, friends or family.
Volunteering alongside friends and family can be such a rewarding experience. Why not gather a group to help build homes for families in need?
Volunteer Information Night is a great opportunity for those who are registered as a volunteer and would like more information before taking the next step. This night is also for those who would like to do more, but are not sure what opportunities are available. Everyone is welcome!
Several times per month, we host a tool training and information session for volunteers who would like to gain some basic knowledge of tools and learn more about how the Habitat program works!
On Tap is a volunteer program designed for busy volunteers who need to schedule shifts with very short notice. If you would like to volunteer, but struggle to commit to a shift until the last minute, this may be a good fit for you.
There is a great opportunity for volunteers to use their skills in our social enterprise, ReStore! We run three in Edmonton and are constantly in need of volunteers to help in a variety of ways.
