HomeWorks Champions: Our community of volunteer leaders
Volunteers are a cornerstone of our work at Habitat. Their hands power the physical transformation of houses we serve, while their voices advocate for decent living conditions on behalf of every vulnerable person.
At Project HomeWorks, we have volunteers who contribute at varying commitment levels: 1. as one-time volunteers, 2. as regular or returning volunteers, 3. as volunteer leaders we fondly call HomeWorks Champions, and 4. as Campus Chapters and Super Champions who operate almost as staff.
One-time or returning volunteers attend our Project HomeWorks sessions to carry out home rehabilitation works required on-site. Guiding these volunteers during the session will be our HomeWorks Champions and Super Champions, who have added responsibilities in helping to run and manage the session with our staff.
Why be a HomeWorks Champion
Be the heart of change
Grow in your own journey as a volunteer: use your new skills and deeper sense of compassion to be a catalyst for good in other areas of your life.
Be a guiding force
Empower our volunteers from all walks of life to come together for a common goal - to serve the community and uplift those less privileged than us.
