Leading the way: We’re looking for crew leaders 

Habitat Orlando & Osceola will be welcoming volunteer groups soon - and we need Crew Leaders to guide these volunteers. Crew Leaders come out regularly to our build site to guide less-experienced volunteers. It’s a modest monthly commitment, and you’ll receive training. A great Habitat Crew Leader doesn’t need professional experience or tremendous skills. You just need a positive, friendly attitude and the patience to guide those new to a construction site. Masks are mandatory on our build site.
