Groups and Teams

Volunteering with Austin Habitat is an excellent team-building opportunity. We are happy to work with you on creating the best experience for your team. We will have new homes under construction Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  We also offer unique volunteer opportunities in the Austin Habitat ReStore, Monday - Saturday. We hope this provides plenty of options for your group to contribute to our mission, while meeting your group's service goals!



  • A group is 5 or more people.

  • All individual volunteers in your group are required to complete our online registration and On-line Safety Training

  • All volunteers must be 16 or older. For information about youth groups, see our youth volunteer opportunities.

  • To provide your group a quality and safe volunteer experience, we limit the number of volunteers to 25 per group.

  • Our work day is 8:00 a.m.- 4:00 pm. We require that all construction groups commit to a full day.

  • Remember, you don't need to know how to build -- we will teach you everything you need to know!

  • We build rain or shine, but just in case of inclement weather check out our Inclement Weather Information.

To get involved, please complete our Group Volunteer Project Application. Once we receive your application we will send you project date options. All groups are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and sponsor teams receive priority scheduling.

For questions regarding day-of coordination, please contact Sarah Joiner at sjoiner@austinhabitat.org.
