Group Opportunities

Volunteering is a great way to bring your corporate, faith, or community group together and improve your teamwork. We offer construction and ReStore opportunities for groups.  If you are interested in volunteering with your group or organization, please Sign Up or contact us by phone or email for more details. One representative from your group must first attend an informal tour, and our volunteer liaison will be happy to schedule a time with you.

Student Opportunities

As a student of Indiana University or Bloomington High School North, you can also get involved with Habitat for Humanity through your school’s chapter. Both chapters have build spots reserved for large groups throughout the year, and are always welcoming of new members. In addition to building, each chapter hosts special events to raise awareness and support for Habitat for Humanity. Habitat chapters are a great way to meet like-minded people, and they’ll keep you engaged in both your school and your community.
