There are many opportunities for volunteers on the construction site:

Regular Construction: We have regular construction opportunities on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8:00am to 2:00pm. No experience is necessary. Volunteer activities can include carpentry, insulation, drywall, painting, cabinetry, landscaping, and more. The minimum age is 16 with parent/ guardian supervision.

Core Construction Team: The core construction team is a group of regular volunteers that are on the jobsite on a consistent, weekly basis. The commitment necessary to be a core volunteer is volunteering 10 hours per month or coming out to 2 volunteer days per month (whichever comes first). If you are interested in joining the core construction volunteer group, email volunteer@habitatlv.org to coordinate a shadow opportunity with one of our experienced volunteers.

Habitat Ambassadors2018-08-01T10:59:43-04:00

Are you passionate about the work that we do in our community? Would you like to learn more about how we work with our Partner Families and community partners? Would you like to share the Habitat Lehigh Valley story with others in our community? If so, we have an opportunity for you!

Our affiliate frequently receives requests for Habitat Lehigh Valley to attend community events to come out, set up a table, and share information about our program and volunteer opportunities. Habitat Ambassadors will represent Habitat Lehigh Valley at these events to educate the community about what we do, answer questions, and advise on how to support, volunteer or/and donate to Habitat. We are looking for 12 volunteers to become members of the newly appointed Habitat Ambassadors Team. We will train you, provide you with talking points, share our brochure materials and answer your questions. Then, as we are asked out into the community we will coordinate with you, according to your availability and interests. Ambassadors will usually work in teams of two or three. Ambassadors will be responsible for providing their own transportation to speaking engagements as well as picking up any required display materials from the Habitat affiliate. If you’re interested please submit a completed application.
