Youth Making a Difference
It’s never too early to start getting involved with Habitat for Humanity! When youth volunteer, they are able to gain invaluable life experience and develop new skills.
We love to connect our youth with opportunities to serve at Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity.
For inquiries on how to connect youth with volunteer opportunities in the ReStore, contact Brenda Jackson, Volunteer Coordinator.
For inquiries on how to connect youth with construction volunteer opportunities, contact Susan Makris, Construction Volunteer Coordinator.
ReStore is Bend Habitat for Humanity’s number one fundraiser. By volunteering, you’re helping build homes right here in Bend. Volunteers are needed six days a week and can accommodate a wide range of skill levels, physical abilities and ages.
Volunteers are the heart of our store.
We strive to provide a fun and meaningful experience for everyone working here, whether community member looking to give back, paid staff, workers in training, or community service volunteers. We are a diverse group of people here for a variety of reasons, but all working to further the ReStore Mission (and we have a lot of FUN doing it):
Youth and Groups
The ReStore welcomes volunteers 9 – 13 years of age to volunteer with an adult guardian/parent. Volunteers 14 and older are welcome on their own.
We are happy to accommodate your school, business, church or civic group with advance notice. Teams have more fun when we’re able to organize a special project.
