A HAND-UP NOT A HAND-OUT
We are looking for volunteers to help us with building the Habitat Home, along with 2 to 3 other homes for our selected partner families.
YOU DON'T NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE
We accept EVERYONE!
You do not need to have previous experience with construction, repair work, or other work that can be done within our programs. We are always looking forward to having individuals volunteer with us, and looking forward to teaching. Our site hosts and supervisors will be with you if you have concerns or questions or need to learn something new.
YOU DO NEED THESE THINGS:
if you have court-ordered community service, please contact Neyla Hadfield firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be limited volunteer opportunities due to disqualifying offenses and other criteria. We may have special accommodations for you based on the specific offenses or criteria.
When you get to the build site, make sure to login into our Volunteer App. This will help track your hours.
Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties prides itself on its informal atmosphere. We hope to provide you with a relaxed place to work. This is reflected in our expectations regarding dress.
At the Habitat ReStores and the Home Builds, here are different scenarios that require different apparel. ReStore volunteers may wear jeans with minor holes. Shorts or skirts that are higher than 3 inches above the knee IS NOT ALLOWED. Shirts and jeans must be worn and must be suited to get dirty, dusty, or ripped. Shorts that are longer than 3 inches above the knee, shorts below the knee, capris, and other jeans may be worn. However, the ReStore managers have the right to to let you know if your attire is unacceptable at the ReStore and that you may be required to change or not volunteer on this day. Closed-toe shoes are also a REQUIREMENT at our Habitat ReStore. Sandals and open-toed shoes ARE NOT ALLOWED. You are expected to not wear loose-fitting clothes that could be caught on merchandise and equipment. If you have long hair, it may be wise to tie it back or pin it up so it doesn’t get caught in equipment.
The purpose for abiding to these clothing requirements in partly due to safety reasons. As a volunteer at our Ogden ReStore, you may be required to move heavy merchandise, move fragile items, bending and moving different things, while using equipment. You are also the “face” of our Ogden ReStore. We want to give our customers a good experience, while also showcasing our professionalism.
If you have any other concerns or questions about attire at our Ogden ReStore, please contact our ReStore managers at 801-393-3287.
Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties wishes to ensure that its employees and volunteers are not injured on the job. Therefore, if you work in construction, you are expected to dress in clothes that are comfortable and do not pose a safety risk. In particular, you should NOT wear loose-fitting clothes that could be caught in equipment. If you have long hair, you should tie it back or pin it up. You MAY NOT wear jewelry or a watch while working, as this could also be caught in the equipment. You must also wear thick-soled shoes to protect your feet from sharp objects. Sandals, flip-flops, and open-toed shoes ARE NOT allowed. You must also wear safety equipment when appropriate, including hard hats, earplugs, gloves, safety glasses, and dust masks. Your supervisor will provide you with this equipment when needed.
