volunteer on a build site
We invite you to build homes with us - no experience necessary!
Whether you’re an individual, a small group, or a corporate or community group, we offer rewarding volunteer opportunities that are flexible for you.
Habitat for Humanity GTA has several build sites across the Greater Toronto Area. There is no previous construction experience required. All you need to bring with you is a pair of CSA approved steel toe boots to start volunteering on one of our build sites!
what to expect on your build day
A typical build day starts at 8:00 a.m. sharp with orientation, safety gear fitting and training, and concludes at 4:00 p.m.
Typical volunteer build day schedule:
**8:00am sharp — Build day commences with orientation, and safety gear fitting and training.
10:30-10:45am — Morning break
12:30-1:30pm — Lunch
2:45-3:00pm — Afternoon break
**4:00pm — Build day ends
**NOTE: All volunteers must commit to being on the build site promptly at 8:00 a.m. and staying for the entire build day. This helps keep our construction schedule on track and ensures families can move into their Habitat homes on the date promised.
