Volunteer Opportunities


Become a Construction Volunteer

Habitat for Humanity welcomes everyone who supports our mission, has a willing heart, energy and enthusiasm onto our construction sites. You don’t need construction experience to volunteer; we provide the training, materials and tools. You must however be at least 16 years of age to work on a construction site.

As a Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts construction volunteer, you’ll learn new skills or improve current ones, meet some terrific people and leave at the end of the day knowing that you’ve helped build a safe, decent and affordable home for a local family in need.

Schedule for Construction Work Days

Normal scheduled work days are Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, beginning at 8:30 AM and ending at approximately 4:00 PM.

Important Work Day Information for Habitat Construction Volunteers

Sign-Up for Individual Volunteers

Individual volunteers may sign up at any time using the Volunteer Up Online Registration and Scheduling Calendar. If you are a first time user of Volunteer Up, you will be asked to complete a simple registration process.

You can learn more about the volunteering process by reading: “How Volunteer Up works”

Sign-Up for Group Volunteers

Group volunteers of less than 4 who want to volunteer together can either sign up as individuals or select one person to sign up and register the others as their guests.

Group volunteers of 4 or more who want to volunteer at one site on the same day must complete the Group Volunteer Application. Please email the completed application or send it in regular mail to: HFHNCM, 138 Great Road, Acton, MA 01720 – Attn: Volunteers.

Please fill out as completely as possible, especially your availability dates. Groups are scheduled on a first come-first served basis. While we make every effort to accommodate group volunteer requests, we do sometimes have to limit the size of the group due to the nature of the project or the work being done. We appreciate your understanding.

Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts would also like to welcome Corporate Group Volunteers! Please see our Corporate Team Building Brochure and complete the Group Volunteer Application.

Volunteer Liability Waiver Forms

Construction volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and all volunteers are required to complete, sign and hand in a Volunteer Liability Waiver Form before they can begin work.

Volunteers 16-18 years old should bring a Minor Waiver Form signed by their parent or guardian. An Adult Waiver Form is required for those 18 and older.

Women Build

The first Friday of every month is a dedicated Women Build day on one of our construction sites. View our calendar for opportunities.

National Women Build Week is held every year in May. It’s a great opportunity for women 16 years of age and older to take a break from their normal routines and spend a day on a construction site. All skill levels welcome – experience is helpful but not necessary.
