There Are So Many Ways to Volunteer

Giving back to your community is easy with Habitat for Humanity Kamloops. There are so many rewarding opportunities that will fit your schedule, interests, and skill level, including:

BUILD SITE VOLUNTEER

Along with local contractors & sponsors, our homes are built with the help of volunteers who are skilled labourers, electricians, plumbers, framers, etc. All shifts must be pre-determined and booked ahead with the Executive Director and Project Manager.

GROUP VOLUNTEERING

Spending a day on a Habitat build is a great way for companies, community organizations or a group of friends to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for families living in need. What better way to learn the value of team building, co-operation and leadership than by working with your co-workers and peers on a Habitat Kamloops build site? Through our Adopt-A-Day program, we offer an innovative team building experience. please check out our group volunteering options.

RESTORE VOLUNTEER
