The core group of Volunteer Builders is widely experienced. Group members’ skills range from architectural design and project management to specific key construction trades. Others are specialists in communications, commercial law, insurance and food services (ensuring that our volunteers are both safe and well fed as they work). Still others are people who just like to help make a difference and are willing to contribute their time and energy.

Participation is open to anyone 19 years of age or older, but each of us is strongly committed to three beliefs:

  • Communities should help one another and, therefore, when we are able, we want to give of ourselves and our resources to organizations and/or individuals who will benefit from our efforts;
  • Volunteerism is as valuable to the participants as to the beneficiaries, provided the experience is safe, motivational and inclusive; and
  • All individuals should have the opportunity to experience self-growth.
