Youth & Student Volunteers

We all work together!

Youth Volunteer on a Habitat Build If you’re looking for a totally different way to build the community involvement hours required for graduation, consider volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Cornwall & The Counties.

You’ll have opportunities in retail, administration, public relations, construction and more. Co-op placements are also possible.

About those 40 hours of Community Involvement…

Complete them in just a few days with Habitat for Humanity Seaway Valley!

Volunteer in our ReStore in 4 or 8 hour shifts to wrap up those 40 hours in no time. The ReStore is open 7 days a week, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. — a great choice of shifts.

There are a few requirements, though.

  • Students must be at least 16 years of age. A parent or legal guardian must sign a release for students under 18 years old.
  • Habitat for Humanity builds and the Habitat ReStore can be hazardous places. Student-volunteers will need to bring safety footwear approved by the Canadian Standards Association. CSA-approved footwear has a solid green triangular patch on the upper of the boot or shoe.
