Team Build Days

Team Builds with Lake-Geauga Habitat for Humanity provide a unique, fun and rewarding experience for any group. No previous construction skills are needed and Habitat will provide the tools and training you need for success.

During a day on the job site, your team will work alongside a Habitat partner family to help them build their home. Group construction tasks offer great opportunities to strengthen workplace skills.

Your work day will help your team:

  • Build and strengthen relationships
  • Create memories
  • Improve communication
  • Build trust
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Demonstrate your organization’s commitment to community building
  • Foster goodwill by helping others

By participating in a Team Build, your team will play an important role in helping to break the cycle of poverty, strengthening our community, and building a brighter future for a local family.
