questions & answers
who can complete school volunteer hours?
Any student over the age of 16 can complete school volunteer hours in our ReStore. Students must complete online orientation (including the quiz at the end) and signup for shifts through our volunteer portal. In addition, any volunteers under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian on their first shift.
who can do court-ordered, or lawyer-recommended community service?
do I need to complete an orientation?
We only accept court-ordered community service for the following charges: traffic violations, DWIs/DUIs, and minor possession charges. Court-ordered community service volunteers will need to provide documenation veryifying their charges and receive approval from either the Volunteer Coordinator or ReStore Manager prior to beginning their volunteer work. For more information, please contact the Volunteer/Engagement Coordinator.
Yes! All new volunteers must complete either an online or in-person orientation. The orientation goes over Habitat's mission, what a ReStore is, and what you can expect as a volunteer.
The online orientation is a powerpoint that can be completed as your schedule allows and has a short quiz at the end to verify completion.
If you would rather complete an in-person orientation, please e-mail the Volunteer/Engagement Coordinator to set up a time.
