Crew Leader Volunteer

Crew Leaders are a group of specialized, skilled volunteers who are responsible for training, mentoring and supervising small groups of volunteers on Habitat for Humanity build sites.

They commit to volunteering at least three days per month, and work closely with our construction site staff to lead volunteers of all skill levels.

Many Crew Leaders have backgrounds in construction, trades, or engineering, or sometimes just a love of home renovations and DIY projects! We offer ongoing training and supervision to ensure everyone has the tools they need to have a safe and fun experience on site.

“I volunteer because it's very rewarding to see the happy smiles on the young families as they're moving to their new home. You know if you give out yourself to others, you'd be rewarded and certainly that has been the case with me.”
