Groups and Teams
Volunteering with Austin Habitat is a unique and rewarding team-building opportunity. It brings people from across an organization together to work on a tangible product – a home for a deserving, low-income family. As a group, you’ll learn practical skills along the way and have the chance to actively communicate in a hands-on project. Constructing a house for an Austin Habitat family is about more than just building a home, it’s about building community.
Watch the following video by our corporate partner, Atlassian, to hear about their volunteer experience on our build site.
