Becoming a Volunteer
If you're looking to make lifelong friends, strengthen a skill set or learn something new - our Volunteer Program is a perfect opportunity for individuals looking to become more involved in their community and give back regularly.
Volunteering on our build site requires no experience—just bring your enthusiasm and we’ll take care of the rest. You will have the opportunity to enhance your construction knowledge, learn new skills, meet new people, and develop leadership skills.
Our construction volunteers are the very core of our work.
Youth Volunteer Procedures and Policies
Holston Habitat has specific policies regarding the appropriate involvement of minors in its housing ministry. While it is important that youth be directly involved with the work of Habitat for Humanity, it is also important that they be involved only in age appropriate activities. Therefore, certain restrictions are in effect and must be adhered to when minors (those less than 18 years of age) are on the construction site. Please click below to view our youth volunteer policy.
Release & Waiver for Minors (ages 14 thru 17)
If building is not for you, Holston Habitat has a variety of opportunities for you and/or your small group. Lend a helping hand at our ReStores, participate in our community outreach events, or share your talents with us at the office. You can get involved on a regular basis and become a Core Volunteer or get involved as your schedule allows.
Whichever way you volunteer, you help transform entire communities and help families build brighter futures.
It takes individuals, leaders, and groups like you, who are willing to give a day, a month, or several days a year to help turn a truckload of construction materials into a new home for a deserving family.
Opportunities are available at the construction site and Volunteers generally participate in construction Wednesday through Saturday, and no construction experience is necessary.
While Holston Habitat is most well known for volunteer-built homes, non-construction volunteers play just as important a role.
We offer many opportunities for volunteers with various skill sets to assist within Holston Habitat - from administrative support, photography, and design, to event production - our volunteers make our mission possible.
ReStore volunteers work alongside staff to create a friendly environment for our customers and support the operations of the store such as inventory, merchandising, and sales.
We have two ReStore locations (Kingsport and Johnson City), giving the most flexible options for volunteers to donate their time. (Must be at least 16 years old.)
