Opportunities for Groups to Volunteer
Building a house together on the job site is a great way to build relationships within your group while helping to address the affordable housing crisis in our community. Bring your team or organization out to build with us and construct a house together. If your group is interested in projects aside from construction, we’ve got those too!
Whether you’re a part of an academic, civic, corporate or faith-based organization, we’d love to partner with your team on the job site. We will be happy to work with you to schedule a rewarding day for your team.
Group build days book fast! Please contact the Volunteer Manager or call the Habitat office at 293-9066 to reserve a date in advance. Group builds are on a first-come basis and it is suggested to reserve a date two months in advance. If you are a college group wanting to build, it is suggested to reserve a date prior to the start of the semester.
Groups from Out of Town
Would your group like to spend some time away from home doing something meaningful for others? Habitat happily welcomes out of town groups for a few days to a week. We help you find a place to stay and organize the volunteer activities. Please contact our Volunteer Manager, or call the Habitat office at (434) 293-9066 for more information about working directly with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.
You can also get involved with us through the following programs affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International:
Bike and Build Bike & Build organizes cross-country bicycle trips that benefit affordable housing groups. Their trips are planned and executed by young adults.
RV Care-A-Vanners This program offers anyone who travels in a recreational vehicle the opportunity to make a difference—and have fun while doing it—by helping build houses with families in need.
Collegiate Challenge A year-round alternative break program that provides opportunities for students from youth groups, high schools and colleges to spend a week building a house.
Learn and Build The Learn and Build program is a fun, eye-opening service opportunity. For two weeks during the summer, students ages 16 to 18 can experience Habitat’s work outside of their communities. In addition to logging two weeks of service, students learn about Habitat through educational activities and cultural programs.
