Build Day Program


Habitat for Humanity GO provides a unique opportunity for motivated individuals to pool their respective talents and make a valuable contribution to the community through our Build Day team building package.

Your team will work together, gaining cooperation skills and a great sense of personal satisfaction. In the process, they will become directly involved in the fight against one of the major causes of poverty – the lack of affordable houses for hard-working, low-income families.

Building communities is what Habitat GO is all about. Your employees will build team spirit as a direct result from working to build a home together. The bond that forms between volunteers on a project such as this is incredible. Knowing that they have truly made a difference is what makes their Habitat GO experience one to be cherished for a life time.

Check out this great video that outlines the Habitat team building opportunities.
