Interesting Team work
Volunteer (Former Employee), Denver, COOctober 8, 2013
I valued this volunteer work very much. We built wood houses and cooperate with our team, learn about how the whole process works. It was interesting and meaningful to know that someday someone will actually live in the house we built. Great experience!

Very productive, but manages to treat their volunteers with respect
Volunteer (Former Employee), Littleton, COSeptember 30, 2013
Pros: nice people, kind enviornment, no strict dress code
Cons: nametags always fell off, it could get boring sometimes
I enjoyed working with Habitat for humanity as long as I did, the people were very kind and helped teach you how to do work you didn't previously know
A typical day there was usually taking care of heavy furniture in the back or just general cleaning around the store, since the store wasn't every that busy
The hardest part of the job was probably the – more... one I did the most, which was carrying most of the furniture, since it can get incredibly heavy sometimes
The most enjoyable part was just knowing that you helped someone out – less

Great company that helps others.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: feelings of helping others
Cons: bring your own lunch, dangers of falling off a roof
Typically we would start in the morning and work, have a lunch break, and be done by at least five or six in the afternoon. I definitely learned how to repair houses, that is if I ever need it. The co-workers helped me with anything I needed. They're great people. I don't really think I had a hard time with any parts of this job. I enjoyed every minute – more... of it! – less

Helping the community with building a foundation for themselves.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Iowa City, IASeptember 24, 2013
Setting up the warehouse so community members can come and shop for their homes and very low prices is amazing. Knowing how expensive tools and appliances can be for homes makes volunteers feel as though they could possibly be making someone's day because of the large amount of products for such a low price. The AmeriCorps workers that run the warehouse – more... are awesome people who enjoy sharing their knowledge about helping the community also. – less

A Volunteer Opportunity with Habitat for Humanity
Volunteer (Former Employee), Beaufort, SCSeptember 6, 2013
Pros: a big learning experience.
Cons: nothing
Alternative Spring Break (ABC) is a program run by the University of New Hampshire which allows for students to spend their spring break volunteering in a different part of the country. My sophomore year at UNH I volunteered to go to Beaufort, SC to work with Habitat for Humanity. I went with eight other UNH students who I did not previously know. This – more... was one of the greatest experiences I have had at UNH. It was great to know other students so well and working with Habitat for Humanity was a great learning experience. Learning about the families we were building the houses for and learning how to build a house were two separate life lessons learned on one trip. – less
