Build Your Team While Building
Homes, Hope & Communities
Team Builds with Lake-Geauga Habitat for Humanity provide a unique, fun and rewarding experience for any group. No previous construction skills are needed and Habitat will provide the tools and training you need for success.
During a day on the job site, your team may work alongside a future Habitat homeowner to help them build their home. Group construction tasks offer great opportunities to strengthen workplace skills.
Your workday will help your team:
Build and strengthen relationships
Develop leadership skills
Demonstrate your organization’s commitment to community building
Foster goodwill by helping others
By participating in a Team Build, your team will play an important role in helping to strengthening our community, and build a brighter future for a local family.
We welcome groups of 10 to 12 volunteers per shift.
