HFHMGC welcomes all volunteers over the age of 16,  regardless of experience or skill level.

PLEASE NOTE: 16 and 17 year olds are limited in the work they are allowed to do on construction sites. Adult supervision is required at a ratio of 1 adult (21 years or older) to 2 minors on our construction sites. Minors must have the HFHMGC Minor Waiver of Liability signed by themselves and their parent/guardian prior to volunteering. Safety is our primary consideration. Inappropriate behavior will result in a request to leave the work site.

“Limited work” for minors is defined as:

  • Landscaping
  • Caulking and Painting
  • Clean-up
  • Any manual work where “feet are on the ground”
  • Other appropriate tasks assigned by the Construction Supervisor

Teens under the age of 18 are NOT allowed to:

  • Use power or electrical tools
  • Engage in demolition work
  • Use ladders or scaffolding
  • Get on the roof

Construction Dress Code:

HFHMGC’s Dress Code will be enforced at all HFHMGC job sites. This code has been compiled by HFHMGC, HFHI and OSHA standards.

You represent the Habitat for Humanity organization. These rules will be strictly complied with for safety reasons. If the Construction Supervisor deems anything that you may be wearing as a safety hazard and/or of a suggestive nature, he/she will not allow you to work on the job site – no exceptions.

Volunteer Hours Documentation:

If you will be needing documentation of any kind for your volunteer hours with HFHMGC let us know prior to registration.
