Construction volunteers are the backbone of Habitat. Without their help, we would not be able to sell our homes at affordable prices. Construction volunteers are out on the job site doing hands-on work.
- We build on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays all year round.
- The day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.
- Volunteers meet the site supervisor at the address of the build and sign in and receive a brief morning orientation and safety talk before getting to work.
- No construction experience is necessary. We have trained professionals to teach you everything you need to know.
- We supply all the tools and materials for the day, including safety glasses and hard hats. You are welcome to bring your own, though, if you'd rather.
- Construction volunteers must be 16 years or older. Those who are 16 or 17 must have parent's permission on a special youth waiver.

Your Team Habitat Day is a partnership between Habitat for Humanity and your group or organization, building community and stabilizing neighborhoods…one family at a time!
Team Habitat is especially designed for corporate organizations, community organizations and groups of all kinds to come together for a day of team building. A combination of volunteer hours and financial contributions doubles your group’s impact. By the end of your build day, we hope that your group will be connected with each other and with the community in a truly unique way. The satisfaction that comes from working with your hands, our partner families, and our staff, will leave your group motivated and exhilarated.
With a Team Habitat Day, we anticipate your group will:
- Have a fun, productive day. Through building a home together, your group will learn how to communicate, cooperate and problem-solve to get the job done. Construction provides natural team-building opportunities that encourage communication, team problem-solving, and leadership experiences.
- Experience the joy of giving back to the community. Your group will feel great about directly helping hard-working local families experience the stability of homeownership
- Receive recognition as a Habitat for Humanity of Monroe partner. We will feature your group on our social media pages, create a sign featuring your logo, and you will receive a group picture to proudly display.
