Volunteers work on a variety of different projects, including tasks such as strengthening foundations, patching leaks, fixing roofs, building walls, repairing stairs, digging flood channels, installing plumbing, and painting exteriors. No matter how much building experience you have, we will match your group’s skill level to an appropriate project.
Your project will be assigned at least a week in advance of your trip. However, most assignments involve you picking up where another team has stopped. That means factors such as weather mean our estimates are continuously changing.
Your center staff will review project details with your group contact person by phone the week before your trip, along with your construction skill assessment, to insure your group is properly matched to the project they’ve identified for you.
