ALL Habitat for Humanity Northumberland volunteers are required to take Safety, Health, Environment (SHE) Training before working on the build site or in our ReStore.  

SHE Training Video 

A 23 minute video instructs all Build and ReStore volunteers on Habitat for Humanity Northumberland's SHE policies.  This training is valid for 1 year.



Habitat Northumberland communicates with our volunteers through Volunteer Base. This service allows our volunteers to register for builds and receive information about current and future volunteer opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):


What is the time commitment?

We ask that build volunteers commit a minimum of 1 full day on the build site. Our days run from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Construction is scheduled Tuesday to Friday. Register with Volunteer Base and check the events calendar. For our ReStore, we prefer that our volunteers commit to a total of 40 hours.

Do I need any construction experience?

No, our friendly, skilled staff and trained volunteers will teach you everything you need to know. Volunteers are led by the construction team who will assign tasks throughout the day in order to get the job done. You will never be asked to do anything you are uncomfortable with. This is a great way to learn more about construction and building.

Do I need any training before building?

Yes, every volunteer must complete a mandatory Safety, Health, and Environment training. This training is approximately 1/2 hour and covers site specific safety, the rights of volunteer workers and more. Safety, Health, and Environment training is valid for one year.

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.
