Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana is constantly looking for volunteers to help in a number of different ways: Construction, ReStore, Community Outreach, and Office Administrative Support. Volunteers are the cornerstone of nonprofits, like Habitat. Community members who are willing to give their time are why we are able to continue working towards our mission. These kinds of volunteer opportunities also have multiple good benefits for the volunteers. Today we will be focusing on the new, helpful skills that volunteers can learn through volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.

The majority of volunteers are construction volunteers and help us build homes. This work includes things such as interior/exterior painting, landscaping, flooring, and framing. Many volunteers have never done the work we ask of them and we are more than willing to provide a brief training to make sure that the work is performed to our standard. These skills translate to everyday life through home repairs and basic maintenance. The more a person understands about how a home is constructed, the more able they will be to fix any issues they have with their own home. 

Outside of construction, volunteers help out at our ReStore and at our main office with community outreach and administrative support. This kind of volunteer work seems less exciting to most volunteers but is invaluable to the overall mission of Habitat. We need volunteers to help us with this work so that we can operate smoothly and continue raising funds for our construction projects. These volunteers learn skills such as customer service, interpersonal communication, and organizational skills. These skills are highly sought after by employers and can be learned through volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana.
