A Day In the Life
- No construction experience necessary – just enthusiasm! Come prepared to haul, dig, measure, cut, pound, raise, demolish or clean – and see real results.
- We work hard to move our Habitat homebuyers into their homes and plan our work based on the number of volunteers who have registered for that day. If you’re unable to make it, please let us know so that we can open your spot for another volunteer.
- Habitat NYC builds with volunteers Wednesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Habitat NYC work days begin promptly at 9am. To make the most of volunteer time, we ask that volunteers arrive at least 15 minutes early to check in and prepare for the day. After volunteers are checked in, we provide an orientation for the day, giving an overview of the day’s work as well as critical safety information.
- Help us stay on time and on track! If you’re running late, please contact the site staff via the number we provide you. If you expect to be more than 30 minutes late, we ask that you consider rescheduling your volunteer day. Late arrivals disrupt our ability to effectively train and orient volunteers.
