Featured Positions

Program Information Center Volunteer

These volunteers will support staff in providing accurate and timely information about our programs and services by answering questions and directing phone calls. We need volunteers who are outgoing, customer-service focused, and willing to make a long-term commitment to this position. This is an office-based role, with the opportunity for volunteers to get to know office staff, serve Habitat families directly, and gain a deeper understanding of how our programs and services help us to work toward our mission of eliminating poverty housing in the Twin Cities.

Program Information Center Role

Front Desk Volunteer

Front Desk Volunteers act as a first point of contact to clients, volunteers and visitors. Volunteers respond to inquiries by directing calls to appropriate staff members. Volunteers will also help save our staff time by handling small projects that keep the organization running smoothly. The Front desk is operational from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday. Volunteers are currently needed for the following shifts:

Monday 1:00 pm- 5:00 pm
Friday 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Front Desk Role

Home Maintenance Workshop Facilitator

These volunteers will develop and lead dynamic and hands-on monthly classes for current Habitat Homeowners on a variety of basic home maintenance and repair tasks. We are looking for volunteers who have skills and knowledge in these topics, and who are comfortable with public speaking and communicating across cultural, language and other differences.
