Get Your Organization Involved!
Habitat Las Vegas hosts all manner of groups. We can accommodate up to 30 volunteers on our construction sites. If you are interested in reserving a group build day, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator with your group size, desired date, and age range of participants. Please contact us well in advance of your desired date as the calendar can fill up quickly!
Join Our Fundraising Challenge!
We invite groups to participate in our fundraising challenge! Groups larger than 10 individuals can sponsor their build day by contributing $100.00 for every person volunteering. Or, go the extra mile and set your own fundraising goal! This helps Habitat Las Vegas build more homes by offsetting construction costs and enabling us to provide professional supervision and safety equipment for volunteers.
Earn Your Red Shirt!
Consistent and dedicated volunteers can become team leaders. Team leaders work under the direction of Habitat Las Vegas staff and guide the on-site coordination of all volunteers. This leadership role requires enthusiasm for sharing Habitat for Humanity’s mission, some knowledge of residential construction and the ability to teach, encourage, and recruit fellow volunteers.
