Professional Skills and Interests - Key Volunteers 

Are you a graphic designer, photographer, attorney or have other professional skills to contribute? You might fit a key volunteer position! Key Volunteers are dedicated Habitat volunteers who help with Habitat's special projects.

Serve on a Committee

We always need people who are skilled and passionate about helping build safe, decent, and affordable homes to serve on one or more of our committees.  Our committees include:

  1. Building and Site Selection

  2. Family Services

  3. Fundraising

  4. Sponsor

  5. Community Relations

  6. Nominating

Each of these committees are the backbone of Altavista Habitat, meet on a monthly basis and work to see that we fulfill our mission. 

Helping at Our Fundraisers

Each year we host several fundraisers staffed by volunteers. Past events  include dinners, brunswick stew, and Silent Auctions.


Internship Opportunities

Whether you are a college student with free time on your hands, a recent graduate looking for more skills to revamp your resume, or simply have time on your hands and want to give back by leading others, Habitat offers various volunteer internship opportunities to help you fulfill your needs while carrying out our Habitat mission. We offer administrative, construction, and departmental volunteer internship positions.  

Landscaping and Gardening  

To help keep costs down, we rely on volunteers to help complete landscaping of our new homes during the annual Blitz Build.  These jobs are for all ages, so if you have a green thumb or enjoy working outdoors, please contact us.
