group volunteer opportunities

Construction (Groups of 4-15)

Most volunteer groups choose to volunteer at Habitat Charlotte Region’s new home sites. Tasks include framing, drywall installation, siding, painting, building sheds, trim work, minor repairs, and more.

Due to ongoing COVID protocols, group construction volunteer opportunities are currently limited to 15 people.

No experience is necessary – our site supervisors provide all the on-site support and training. You can use the buttons below to find your group, or if you are a group leader, you can find a shift by searching through our shift search tool.  If you need assistance, please contact our volunteer team at any time:

Book Drives (Groups of 5-10)

Join the Julia’s Café & Books team to collect books in host neighborhoods on Saturdays. Your group can help distribute flyers and tote bags or help pick up tote bags filled with books. To register your group for a Book Drive, follow the group registration instructions below.


Team Build Partnerships

A Team Build is a one-day construction experience for corporate teams of 10-15 people, working together on a new Habitat Charlotte Region house. Together, your team will have fun, connect with their fellow colleagues in a truly meaningful way, and leave the build site proud of their accomplishments, their team, and their organization.

The suggested Team Build Partnership donation is $5,000. Partnerships, along with the donation of volunteers’ time, help offset the cost of labor and materials for a home.
