"Working as a construction volunteer has not only taught me construction skills, but also showed me the joy a new homeowner has when they can purchase and move into their own home." -R.P.

We welcome your interest in participation, but due to our size, we are limited to the number of volunteers we can use on a work site safely. Opportunities vary with construction stages and seasons. In addition, we have a need for clerical (office/event) volunteers.
Individual volunteer time commitments may vary from a day or two of construction help a week, to a few hours a month of non-construction assistance. As a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, you can choose to volunteer as little or as often as we can accommodate. All volunteer activities act as a tremendous gift to us and help our families, neighborhoods and communities in many direct and indirect ways!
Please call our office for more information on any volunteer opportunity at (607) 239-4783. These forms are also available at our office.
To volunteer, please follow these steps:
All individual volunteers must fill out an application, watch a Safety Orientation video and sign a Release and Waiver of Liability. In addition, construction volunteers must take an online safety course before they can work at any construction site. Please see requirements below for volunteer groups (corporation, church, club, etc.)

FOR VOLUNTEER GROUPS:
One representative/leader should fill out the application and take the online training. Each person in the group needs to watch the Safety Orientation video below, read our safety information and sign the waivers.
Please note: Your application takes time to process. We cannot call to schedule a work day until we have the certificate for your training. Training certificates are sent to us each Friday by our insurance company. Please give yourself or your group plenty of time for your application to be processed.
We can create special opportunities for youth to be involved, however, to volunteer for construction as an individual, you must be 18 years of age.
