volunteer on a build site

we need your hands and hearts to help us build homes!

Whether you’re an individual, a small group of fewer than five people, or a corporate or community group of more than five, we offer rewarding volunteer opportunities that fit your schedule, interests and abilities.

Habitat for Humanity GTA has several build sites across the Greater Toronto Area – all with public transit access. There’s no previous experience required and all of the equipment, training and safety gear you need for the day is provided!

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 ends at 4:00 p.m with clean up.

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 homes on the date promised.
