Special Opportunities

Most committees meet monthly at the Habitat office. Please contact committee chairs to learn more about how you can become involved.

Global Village Program

A Domestic and International Volunteer Program

Volunteer internationally to build decent, affordable shelter alongside members of the community.  Learn about poverty housing, development challenges and Habitat’s ministry and mission to help eradicate them. The funds you raise help build decent shelter in the country you visit and support the Global Village program.

The Benefits of Volunteering on a Global Village Trip:

  • You will have an opportunity to contribute to Habitat's work and create positive change in the world.
  • You will learn about poverty housing, development challenges and Habitat’s mission to eradicate them.
  • You will experience the community’s culture, language and social practices while working alongside homeowners and volunteers of all backgrounds, races and religions.
  • You will take part in a transformative, lifelong journey that may ignite your passion for making this world a better place. 

What to Expect from a Global Village Trip:
While every Global Village trip is different; you can expect to gain once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories. Itineraries are balanced with plenty of work, rest and free time. During your trip, you will do more than help build houses―you will become part of the local community and participate in cultural activities
