Volunteers wanted!

Engaging and retaining volunteers is vital to the success of Habitat for Humanity Mid-Vancouver Island. Our volunteers enable us to better support our mission of providing affordable homeownership to the communities we serve. Volunteering on the Habitat build site and the ReStore is a rewarding experience that everyone will enjoy. It’s a great chance to give back to the community, make friends, have fun and receive on the job training for all work undertaken!


A sample of our volunteer opportunities is listed below. To volunteer with Habitat, sign up on our online portal, wait for your application to be approved, and start signing up for shifts all from the comfort of your home! If you have any questions about the process of signing up or any other volunteering related question, please contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteercoordinator@habitatmvi.org
