Construction volunteers work alongside our construction team, Partner Families and other volunteers building new homes.
The day starts with the site supervisor conducting a “Toolbox Talk” to explain safety procedures and the days tasks. Depending on the stage of new construction, volunteers can expect to: frame floors and walls, set roof trusses, install siding, build porches, install windows and doors, paint, install cabinets, trim and flooring, landscape and more.
We appreciate all of our volunteers and do our best to make sure everyone has a fantastic build day. Part of having a great build day is safety. Due to the hazards of construction work, there are some limitations on what volunteers under 18 may do.
Minors 16–17 are allowed to participate in construction work, but are prohibited from using power tools; being on ladders, scaffolding, or walk boards more than 4’ higher than surrounding area; being on platforms or decks without hand or guard rails when more than 4’ above surrounding area; and being on a roof or participating in roofing. Minors participating on a build site must have adult supervision. All minors must complete a liability waiver and have it signed by their parent or guardian.
