Group Volunteering

Group Volunteer Opportunities

A Team Building Experience Like No Other

Group volunteers at Rebuild come in all types and sizes. We’ve welcomed church groups, community groups, groups of friends, and businesses both small and large. Group volunteers don’t need to have any special training, just the ability to lift some lumber and work outside!

We call our group volunteer days “build days” because you’ll be doing just that—getting your hands dirty while working on a home improvement project for a neighbor. At the end of the day, you’ll see the fruits of your labor: a finished project that fills a need immediately. You’ll witness firsthand the impact you’re having on a homeowner’s life.

A Day in the Life on Site

What to Expect on Your Build Day

Arrival & Orientation

Group volunteers arrive to the worksite between 8:00-8:30 am and are greeted by their Site Leader. The Site Leader takes you through a brief orientation:

  • Check-in and safety talk
  • Overview of project and plan for completion
  • Tour of the tool shed and introduction to the equipment needed for the day
  • Assigning tasks
Build Time

Once assigned tasks, volunteers start work on the project. This typically looks like:

  • 3-4 volunteers for framing
  • 2-3 volunteers for cutting boards
  • 2-3 volunteers for laying deck boards

Since build days are an all day event, lunch breaks are scheduled in for about 12pm. Each group is responsible for providing their own lunch

After the project is complete, volunteers clean up the worksite, pack up the toolshed and head home. Often the homeowners will come out to view the completed work and thank the team.
