If you’re looking for a totally different way to get in those 40 hours of community service, consider volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario. You can wrap up those 40 hours in no time. Students must be at least 16 years of age and have a parent or legal guardian sign a release for those under 18 years old.
We offer a great choice of flexible shifts, and students gain many benefits from volunteering. You can:
You’ll have opportunities in retail, administration, public relations, construction and more. Co-op placements are possible too. Don’t delay, apply today!
We have plenty of ways to get involved if you’re a student at UWO, Ivey School of business or Fanshawe College.
Habitat for Humanity Western (University) has their own group that organizes outreach and fundraising events on campus, participates in local team days and supports Habitat for Humanity International for a team week. They have also started two major initiatives – the Ambassador program and the Pen Pal program. The Ambassador program is targeted to high schools in London, in order to help them with contributing to Habitat for Humanity by organizing fundraisers, creating a school club, and helping with their Pen Pal program. The Pen Pal program connects students at an after-school program at the Boyle Community Centre with pen pals in Chile. This group has approximately 300 students.
The Ivey Business School has a program called Ivey Connects. Ivey Connects is a student run organization with the goal to inspire students to contribute to the societies in which they live. This program allows students to help local charities through volunteering and fundraising which develops the skills they are learning in the program.
The Fanshawe Club was established in 2016, thanks to the students at Fanshawe College. They support our builds by joining us as individuals or participate in a team on site. We also have partnerships within certain programs at Fanshawe. The Fanshawes Carpentry Apprenticeship Program helps us during the school year with framing the walls and roof of the homes. The Plumbing Apprenticeship program helps with the entire plumbing installation from rough-in to finish. The Construction Project Management support us by sending volunteers to our regular build days, and the Sheet Metal Apprenticeship support us by designing and installing our HVAC systems.
