Cornerstone Volunteer Leadership Program


The Cornerstone Volunteer Leadership Program was created to enhance the volunteer experience, increase safety, improve construction schedules and increase the quality of each home. The program has evolved into an integral component of our construction team.  Cornerstone members manage 100% of the volunteers on site, with staff acting in a support role.

Cornerstone Volunteers

Cornerstone members are a group of men and women from varied backgrounds with widely divergent skills who give their time, their talents, and their resources to support and continue the mission of Trinity Habitat.


  • Attend a training class that focuses on safety.
  • Demonstrate you know how to work with homeowners and volunteers.
  • Demonstrate adequate construction knowledge to our Construction Team.
  • Complete 100 hours on Trinity Habitat build sites.
  • Attend four monthly Cornerstone Trainings OR complete the five-week Cornerstone College.


Most volunteer opportunities are on Fridays and Saturdays. We also have volunteer opportunities available during the week, primarily on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
