Women Build Week May 6th - 10th, 2019
Women Build is an event that empowers women to help with housing construction efforts, an area that generally only 15% of volunteers are female. This is a great opportunity to spend a day on the build site while helping to provide a new home to a deserving Partner Family.
No Experience Necessary
The Midland County Habitat for Humanity Women Build Week provides the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals, and also alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved, and improves the community that you share.
Women Build is also a terrific way to involve your friends and family of all ages in crucial work with a lasting impact. You can also come alone, and make new friends. The atmosphere is collaborative and friendly.
Get prepared for Women Build Week with a free, hands-on power tool clinic. Learn how to properly and safely use common power tools and review work site safety guidelines. Put those skills to use during Women Build Week May 6th – 10th, 2019
It is not required to participate in a Tool Clinic before volunteering for Women Build Week, but it is strongly encouraged.
