Opportunities for Groups

Do you have a motivated group of friends? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity for our business or community organization?

Sign up for a group build day! Some opportunities require sponsorship while others do not. 

  • Where are you building?
    We are currently building two homes in Cape Porpoise
  • What does a typical build day look like?
    Volunteers have the opportunity to spend a half day (8:30-12:00) or a full day (8:30-3:30) on the build site. The day begins with a short intoduction about what the day will entail. The construction manager will teach volunteers how to complete the daily assignments. There will be a break for lunch around 12:00 (not provided). Volunteers complete work that they are comfortable doing, no one will be required to do something that they are unfortable with. We encourage volunteers to take breaks as needed.
  • What should volunteers know about volunteer during Covid-19?
    Masks are currently optional. If you are feeling sick or have a known covid exposure please stay home and register for a different volunteer day.
  • Do I need construction experience?
    No! We welcome volunteers of all skill levels on the build site. The construction manger and skilled volunteers will be on the build site to teach you everything you will need to know.
  • What should I bring with me to volunteer?
    All necessary tools and safety equipment will be provided on the job site, but you are welcome to bring tools from home. Water bottles and snacks are availible on the build site, but we encourage you to bring your own water bottle. Please wear closed toe shoes, and dress in layers.
  • Are there bathrooms on the build site?

  • Can I take pictures?
    Yes! We encourage volunteers to take pictures and tag us on social media! Facebook: @habitatyorkcounty Instagram: @habitatyorkcounty
