ReStore Volunteers

We always need ReStore Volunteers! As a a volunteer at the ReStore, you will help keep the flow of donations moving from our receiving area, through testing, to tagging, onto the shop floor and eventually making their way to our customers.

Restore volunteers must be 16 years of age or over and have a completed background check and current liability waiver on file.

Construction Volunteers

It takes many teams, many hands and many days to build a home and so we want you and your crew to help! Experience is great, but not required. We typically have trained, skilled volunteers on site who are ready to share their knowledge. Construction volunteers must be 18 years of age or older (or 16 with a parent or guardian’s permission).

Community Revitalization Volunteers

We’re always looking for different ways to serve the community! Help beautify a neighborhood by helping residents perform minor repairs and maintenance on the outside of their homes. Whether it’s painting a windowsill or planting flowers, Community Revitalization Volunteers will get it done!

Volunteer Crew Leaders

Without our Crew Leaders we simply wouldn’t have the knowledge and ability to build Habitat Homes. It takes leaders, teachers and builders to get the most out of our volunteer crews, and that could be you!

After background check is complete you will be contacted to start volunteering. Please note: you must bring a valid photo ID, and any volunteers under 18 must attend with a parent or guardian.

Our Orientation Sessions Are On:

  • Tuesday: 5:00PM
  • Thursday: 10:00AM

Frequently Asked Questions

Getting started on volunteering with Rose Rock Habitat for Humanity is easy, and we have a few options available. The first step to any of these is registration and orientation.

Construction volunteering opportunities are available occasionally for adult volunteers only, and the best way to be notified of these opportunities is to place yourself on the construction volunteering waitlist. Construction volunteer events may include tasks affected by the weather, meaning plans may be changed based on the safety of volunteers and employees. Construction volunteer opportunities are most available in the late spring through early autumn.

Cleanup and Beautification volunteer events are another occasional choice for adults interested in outdoor volunteering. At cleanup and beautification events, we would be helping a resident or neighborhood refresh the outside of their dwelling or dwellings by removing debris, gardening, performing basic landscaping, painting, and doing minor repairs on fences and homes. This is another type of event that is affected by the weather. Like construction events, cleanup and beautification are concentrated in late spring through early fall. A wait list is available on the registration page if no opportunities are listed.

Adopt-a-park cleanups occur at least once per quarter/season. We have adopted Legacy Trail and Oakhurst Park to show our commitment to building community here in Norman, and as part of the park adoption, we must do a cleanup on each park at least 4 times per year, or once per quarter/season. Park cleanups are family friendly events, and volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join in. Not all jobs will be right for age groups, however, so please check job descriptions for age requirements. A wait list is available on the registration page if no opportunities are listed.

Special Events are often gatherings like fairs or festivals where Rose Rock Habitat for Humanity may host a booth or information table. Ideally, people who volunteer for this event type are familiar with Habitat for Humanity by volunteering with us, shopping with us often, being friends or family of a Habitat employee or homeowner, or working with another Habitat affiliate. Volunteers at this kind of event will help Habitat staff by being a friendly, knowledgeable ambassador of Habitat for Humanity to the public.

Habitat for Humanity has safety as our number one concern when dealing with minor volunteers, and for that reason their involvement is limited to certain event types.

Volunteers 14+ are welcome at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore after they attend an orientation if a liability waiver is completed by a legal adult guardian. Volunteers aged 14-17 must perform their work on the sales floor only, and their duties are limited to cleaning and custodial tasks, along with customer service. If this sounds right, please have them register by clicking here or visiting this URL: https://app.initlive.com:443/JE/6m4ruva32bpzz8

Note: when filling out an application for a minor, please upload your (the adult guardian) ID where the form asks for an ID and use your name when signing the waiver at the end of the application. All other information should be that of the minor volunteer.

Volunteers under 14 may only be allowed at Adopt-a-park events, and some special events. Please check with Community Outreach Administrator Matthew Allen-Morgan at [email protected] for more information.

Rose Rock Habitat for Humanity works with people of all different ability levels, and we can usually accommodate disabled volunteers. If you are not certain please contact us at [email protected] to discuss your situation.

Yes. For safety and procedural integrity, all volunteers in a group must register online for their event. We use the online registration to print a list of all emergency information that applies to your group (e.g., emergency contact information, medical conditions and allergies, etc.). Also, filling out paperwork on the day of the event by passing around clipboards and pens can take a half-hour or more—filling out the forms online takes an individual 3-4 minutes.
