While Playhouse Build days require a donation, there are ways to get involved without a donation for individuals or small groups such as Playhouse Prep Volunteers or Event Crew Leaders.
The opportunities listed below are perfect for those looking to make a difference with Habitat on their own time.
Volunteers age 16 and older are needed in our Playhouse workshops to turn raw plywood into the ingredients for an adorable little house. From learning how to machine cut to base painting pieces, Prep Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about woodworking, tools, painting, and more!
If you would like to schedule a prep day for a group of 5 to 8, please fill out our Playhouse Build form. Please note that most Playhouse Prep shifts can only accommodate 5-8 volunteers per shift.
Event Crew Lead Volunteers
Event Crew Leaders assist in setup, volunteer direction, clean up, and staff support at Playhouse Build events. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to improve leadership skills while guiding groups as they build one-of-a-kind playhouses for children!
Here is how you get started as a Playhouse Event Crew Leader:
- Volunteer- Sign up for a prep volunteer shift and let the Playhouse Staff know you would like to learn more about becoming an Event Crew Leader.
- Attend a small Playhouse Build- Check in with Playhouse staff about volunteering at an upcoming Playhouse Build. At the build, help facilitate and learn about being a Crew Leader. Repeat as necessary until fully trained and set to help at a large build.
- Become a Crew Leader- You will be added to the Playhouse email list to receive updates about upcoming Playhouse Builds and events. From there, you can sign up to Crew Lead at Playhouse Builds directly with Playhouse staff!
