Habitat Build Day

The ultimate team-building experience!

how it works

Our Habitat Build Day is ideal for corporate teams who are looking to give back to the community in a meaningful way, while learning new skills. No construction experience or gear required! We take care of it all, from registration to tool belts. We build year-round in Manitoba. Our build sites can accommodate teams of 5 to 50 people with customizable programs to meet your corporate employee engagement and team building objectives. Participants get the opportunity to work in collaborative groups to complete building tasks and accomplish something meaningful for their community.

what is a Habitat Team Build?

This one-of-a-kind employee engagement opportunity offers your company the chance to invest in your employees while making a real difference in the lives of hard-working families and the communities in which they live. Your team members will come together on a Habitat for Humanity Manitoba build site, roll up their sleeves and work to support families to build strength, stability and self-reliance through home ownership.

Habitat’s team building opportunity is an experience like no other. Participants of all skill levels and abilities are welcome – no construction experience required! Your team members will learn useful skills as they work side by side in a safe environment under the leadership of experienced Habitat Manitoba crew leaders. You will have fun; connect with your colleagues in a truly meaningful way, leaving the build site proud of your accomplishments, your colleagues, and your organization.

An investment in our builds is an investment in your team members, your community, and your corporate brand.

safety first

Your team’s safety is our first priority. Our Habitat Manitoba staff and volunteers will ensure that you are safe throughout the day. All participants are suited up with safety gear, trained and coached through a variety of construction tasks, while having fun.

“Giving back and making a positive difference in the communities where Enterprise employees live and work is part of our culture. In fact, one of our founding values is, “We strengthen our communities, one neighborhood at time.” It’s because of organizations like Habitat for Humanity that we are able to exemplify this value and support our community in so many impactful ways.
“Employees are encouraged to get involved in their communities in any way they choose, and so many times, our employees choose to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. They tell us that being a part of the building process provides a unique experience that allows them to see firsthand the gratitude of soon-to-be homeowners”.

“As an organization, participating in the Team Building program is about improving our community, supporting families, and spending the day with our colleagues in an entirely different environment. For Emergent, it is an annual event that has a quick volunteer sign-up and is so rewarding to all of us, and it pays back ten-fold in our team culture. Amazing what each set of hands can do to make a difference”.
