"It's really empowering. Women don't just have to volunteer in the kitchen (but they can if they want). We can do all the same stuff the men can: hammer, drill, lift, build, carry, cut, saw and more! It's great to see women who have the courage to try anything."
-Jeri-Lynn, Build and Salvage Crew Volunteer Team Leader
We're are shaking things up this year, and hosting a Women Build Week from June 12 to June 16! Come for a day or the whole week, and feel energized and empowered as you play a role in fulfilling someone’s dream of homeownership. This isn’t about excluding men, but including women. You don’t need to have any building skills, but you won’t believe how quickly you will learn them. Everyone is welcome, so bring your sister, mother or girlfriends. Anyone can help build homes, build hope and build communities.
Want to make this a team building experience where your team will enhance leadership skills, learn to collaborate and optimize team effectiveness? Then make your Women Build a Team Build Day.
Ready to sign up? Perfect! Click here to be directed to our online volunteer database where you'll be asked to create a unique profile.
