Volunteer Responsibilities

You don't need any special construction skills, although being able to pound nails is a plus. You'll be working side by side with volunteer team members and the partner family; partners contribute hundreds of hours of "sweat equity" toward their new home. In many cases, the entire community also pitches in. You will be helping in Mixing cement, digging trenches, cementing cinder blocks & more.
