VOLUNTEERING AT HABITAT - INDIVIDUALS
Volunteers are Needed!
We are currently unable to accept new volunteers at this time. If you are interested in volunteering with us, send us an email and we will be sure to update you when we are able to welcome new volunteers again.
If interested in any of the opportunities please start by signing up for a Volunteer Orientation Training by contacting our office at 541) 779-1983. Orientations are held on Wednesdays at 4 pm in Medford at our Admin Office (2201 S. Pacific Hwy, Medford) or by appt. - Orientations have been canceled until further notice.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and minors must have a parent or guardian present at our orientation to sign a release of liability.
Join our amazing team of volunteers and participate in a house build on one of our existing projects. No experience is necessary and we provide the supervision, tools and materials. Construction work days are Tuesday and Friday for Rogue River and Wednesday and Friday for Medford. Our crews typically work from 9am-3pm, depending on construction status and weather. Please do your best to arrive on time. We want to provide you as much volunteer work time as possible but it is vital to have everyone present for a welcome and safety talk.
Once you have attended our required volunteer orientation we will email you a registration link for our construction volunteer portal (Sign-Up Genius). This handy tool will tell you where we are working and the anticipated project/work for the day.
Our stores are a vital part of the Habitat for Humanity model and essential to our success. They also offer the most flexible volunteer opportunity. Our Medford store is open Mon-Sat from 8am-6pm and Sun from 10am-5pm. Our White City store is open Tue-Sat from 9am-5pm. All court ordered community service will be completed in our Medford ReStore.
