What to Expect on a Habitat Worksite:
We love hosting volunteers and teaching people new skills! If you’ve never used power tools or worked on a construction site, fear not! As a volunteer, you will work alongside a skilled construction team and future Habitat homeowners as we work toward our vision of ensuring that everyone has a decent place to live. We provide on-the-job training along with all required tools and safety equipment. Volunteering is an amazing way to learn new things, meet new people, AND give back to your community!
HOURS: Teton Habitat builds with volunteers every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 8:45 AM to 4:30 PM.
LOCATION: We are currently building at 445 E Kelly, Jackson, WY 83001
LUNCH: We take a one hour lunch break from noon to 1 pm. Please pack a lunch or make plans for your meal. There is currently not an indoor space to eat lunch on the construction site.
EXPERIENCE: No experience is necessary. We have the tools and training you need for the task on hand.
TYPES OF WORK: Volunteers help Habitat every step of the way! Individuals help with daily construction task such as:
- Building foundation
- Framing, wall raising, and roofing
- Installing insulation, siding, windows, doors, and cabinets
- Loading and unloading materials
WHAT TO WEAR: Winter has arrived in Jackson! Be prepared to work outdoors for the entire day by dressing in warm layers. The state of our current construction site is exposed to the elements.
- Wear warm socks and boots
- Wear non-cotton base layers to help keep you warm
- Bring extra layers and coats so you can be comfortable and happy throughout the day.
- Wear hats, gloves, and buffs – you can always shed layers if you get too warm
- Do not wear loose clothing, tie hoodies or pants
WHAT TO BRING:
- A reusable water bottle. We will have a water bottle filling station on site.
- Snacks – when the weather is cold, extra calories can help your body stay warm!
