What you need to know about

Volunteering with a Group

The work you will be doing is real construction work! It can sometimes be tough and there are always risks associated with construction. To help maintain a safe site, there are a few things you need to know before signing up for a group volunteer opportunity:

  • Equipment and on-site training for all tasks will be provided.  Volunteers of all experience levels, including those with no experience, are welcome.
  • All volunteers will be asked to provide complete our volunteer form, which includes contact information, demographic questions and a release and waiver of liability, in order to volunteer. Once your group reservation has been confirmed, the form will be emailed to the group contact person.
  • The minimum age to volunteer is 16. Youth volunteers will be asked to wear a colored wrist-band on the site and will need a release form completed by their parent or legal guardian in order to volunteer on the construction site.
  • Youth Groups may participate in construction with adult supervision. When calculating your group size, please include 1 adult volunteer (25 or older) for every 4 youth volunteers.
  • Please be sure to let us know if you will have youth volunteers in your group so we can plan age-appropriate activities.
