Habitat Charlotte Region welcomes all volunteers at this time!
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are continuing to take the following precautions:
Volunteer opportunities for all volunteers are available at our ReStores; please visit CLTregionReStore.org/volunteer for more information. We also still have plenty of ways you can help from home!
If you have any questions, please email volunteer@habitatCLTregion.org.
Yes. All construction volunteers must be at least 16-years-old, no exceptions. Some tasks have an 18+ policy (roof work, some vinyl siding shifts, etc.). The age requirement is specified for each shift.
Task restrictions for 16 & 17-year-old volunteers:
Parents of 16 and 17-year-olds must sign the additional minor release waiver.
No, not at all!
Previous experience never hurts, but it isn’t necessary. All construction sites have a site supervisor that will provide all of the on-the-job training needed for the day’s tasks.
Unless you hear otherwise from a Habitat Charlotte Region staff member via email (by 6:45 a.m. the day of your scheduled shift), plan to volunteer rain or shine. Site supervisors can often adjust tasks to accommodate for inclement weather.
If you’re not sure about the task(s) assigned to a volunteer shift for which you’re interested in registering, take a look at these brief descriptions of on-site tasks.
We have half-day volunteer options available at any of our Charlotte Region ReStore locations and Julia’s Café & Books. Head over to the Charlotte Region Restore site to see how you can get involved.
There are also three-hour volunteer shifts on occasional Book Drives through Julia’s Café. Read more about Book Drives on the Individual Volunteer Opportunities page.
All necessary tools and safety gear will be provided by Habitat Charlotte Region. If preferred, you may bring your own. Please label all personal tools with your name. Although not mandatory, volunteers are suggested to bring their own work gloves, if available.
Water is provided on-site. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to reduce waste and ensure proper hydration. Lunch is not provided by Habitat Charlotte Region during the volunteer shift. Volunteers can bring a bagged lunch, go off-site during the lunch break or arrange to have food delivered to the site.
There is a delay to the time tracker since hours are entered manually for construction shifts. For ReStore shifts, staff occasionally has to correct the totals created by the kiosk.
Please contact the Volunteer Services team at 704.716.7040 ext. 2230 or volunteer@habitatCLTregion.org.
