GROUPS: Booking a Group/Team Build Day
Here is some general information for planning your Group/Team Build Day(s):
- Groups are booked on a first-come first-serve basis. A group date is not confirmed until receipt of confirmation email from Morris Habitat.
- We build most Mondays through Saturdays at sites in and around Morris County.
- Our construction day is from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Unless otherwise advised, volunteers should bring a bag lunch. Lunch is from 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM.
- Ideal group sizes are between 5-15(MAX) volunteers in order to optimize your group’s build day experience.
- Construction volunteers must be 16 years of age to be present on an active build site. Youth volunteers ages 16 or 17 years old must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. One adult chaperone is required for every 5 youth volunteers. Chaperones must be 21 years of age.
- The project site location is provided no earlier than one week before the scheduled build date. We book groups by date not by the project site.
- Although we make every effort to anticipate the tasks that will be undertaken, you are volunteering at an active construction site, we are unable to guarantee the type of work your group will be undertaking on any specific day.
What to Expect:
- A Site Supervisor is in charge of the work and volunteers each work day.
- All are welcome – No special skills are needed!
- All we ask for is a smile and a willingness to help. We will send you home tired, dirty and happy!
- The Construction FAQs will answer your questions about what to expect from a Morris Habitat for Humanity construction site.
