Make global friends

As a Global Village volunteer, you will work alongside members of the host community in building decent, affordable homes. Your active partnership will help raise awareness of the burden of poverty housing and create a true global village of love, community, homes and hope.

No experience necessary

Habitat’s Global Village volunteer program welcomes all who want to make a difference by picking up a hammer and helping to change lives. There is no maximum age limit. Many of the trips require strenuous manual labor, so all participants should be in good health.

What you will do on your trip

As a Global Village volunteer, you may work on house construction or renovations. Trip itineraries are balanced with plenty of work, rest and free time. This is a nine day trip with five days of construction and two days devoted to orientation and cultural experiences.

Every Global Village trip is different, but you can expect to gain a unique set of experiences and memories. Volunteers form once-in-a-lifetime friendships as they travel, live, work and eat together.
