Individual Volunteer Opportunities

At Habitat, we realize that volunteering isn’t a “one size fits all” experience. Everyone has different attributes, interests, and skillsets, which inspired us to expand our volunteer opportunities! There’s a little something for everyone, no experience required! 

Construction Volunteer

Working as a construction volunteer is a great option if you’d like to meet and network with other community members while learning new practical skills in a lowpressure setting. Tasks can include activities like landscaping, fence building, siding and painting. Seven-hour shifts are available Tuesday-Saturday based on need.

Core Construction Volunteer

Core Construction Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do! This is is an excellent opportunity for those able to volunteer at least one or twice per week–no experience needed! Sevenhour shifts are available Tuesday-Saturday.

For more information, please contact Sherelle at swatkins@habitatgreatersac.org.

ReStore Volunteer

If you have retail experience or enjoy providing customer service, the ReStore could provide a great volunteer opportunity! At the ReStore, you’d support the staff with tasks like donation receiving, assembly, sales floor organization, and greeting customers! Six-hour shifts are available Tuesday-Saturday.

Administrative Volunteer

Calling all keyboard warriors to the front! Come support Habitat’s office staff with clerical and administrative tasks like answering phones, data entry and organization, as well as providing volunteer support and peer training. If you have office experience or would like to learn we’d love to have you! 

For more information, please contact Sherelle at swatkins@habitatgreatersac.org.

Habitat Ambassador

If you enjoy switching up your environment and engaging with and educating others, volunteering as a Habitat Ambassador may suit your work style! Habitat Ambassadors play a key role in raising awareness around our programs and inspiring participation and increasing our reach in the Greater Sacramento and Yolo regions. 

For more information, please contact Sherelle at swatkins@habitatgreatersac.org.

Electrical Crew Volunteer

This volunteer opportunity requires the greatest time commitment and could be a great opportunity for those with time to spare! Our Electrical Crew instructor, Cliff Popejoy, has been training and working alongside the Electrical Crew for decades. Through this program, members gain hands on training from certified electricians in an in-demand trade that could translate into future employment. However, this is not a vocational training program.

Stay tuned for recruitment and training updates early 2025!

For more information, please contact Sherelle at swatkins@habitatgreatersac.org.

Please note, we do not currently schedule “Back to Work” volunteers.
