Whether you’re a student looking to make a global impact or an organization wanting to serve, we’re excited you’re interested in volunteering with BUILD!
If you would like to volunteer as an individual, you DO NOT need to sign up! Just show up to site ready to work!
COVID-19 Guidelines for Construction 2020:
a mask must be worn on site at all times
volunteer groups will be limited to 25 people per shift
temperature checks upon arrival
a hand washing station will be set up for use when entering/exiting site

When does construction start?
Construction will take place from September 21st to November 20th. The site will be open to volunteers Monday through Friday from 9 AM - 7 PM.
I have no construction experience and I've never worked with tools before; can I still volunteer?
Absolutely! Volunteering does not require previous construction experience. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, whether you're a master builder or a novice who has never touched a hammer before.
What should I wear when I volunteer?
It is University and BUILD policy that all volunteers are required to wear closed-toed shoes, sleeved shirts, and long pants. If the shirt and pant requirements are not met, there is a limited availability of scrubs a volunteer may wear.
*Current policy also requires a mask be worn on site at all times.
Do I need to sign up to volunteer?
If you are a student interested in volunteering, there is no need to sign up. The only requirement is filling out a Waiver form when you come to site for the first time that year.
Do I need to fill out any paperwork before coming to site?
There is no need to print any paperwork ahead of time. We have implemented a new electronic waiver which will be completed upon arrival at site.
Is there a limit for how many times my organization can volunteer?
Your organization is welcome to sign up for as many shifts as you all would like, although most organizations prefer weekly or biweekly schedules.
Where is the construction site located?
We are located at 750 Agronomy Rd, right next to the General Services Complex on Bus Route # 6 (12th Man).
