STEP 1: Complete our online form (or call 816-924-1096)

  • Which days of the week you’re available and when you’d like to start.
  • If you’re completing community service hours for court or school, please let us know how many hours you need to complete.

STEP 2: Schedule and attend a volunteer orientation

  • All individual volunteers OR Group leaders are required to attend.
  • Group leaders to then share the information with the rest of their group members.
  • All construction volunteers should also take the online safety training at Habitat for Humanity’s volunteer training website.

STEP 3: Schedule your first volunteer day

Please note that we have many groups looking to schedule days with us, and individual volunteers fill in with smaller groups.

  • The earlier you can schedule, the better your chance of getting the dates you want.
