Welcome to the 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.

The 2017 Carter Work Project will be held at sites across Canada July 9 – 14th. The two main build sites will be hosted by Habitat for Humanity Edmonton and Habitat for Humanity Manitoba (Winnipeg). We invite you to join President and Mrs. Carter and hundreds of volunteers as we help 150 families across Canada, including Indigenous families, access affordable homeownership.

For over 30 years, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter have traveled across the world with Habitat for Humanity and thousands of volunteers, donating their time and voices to build and improve homes alongside Habitat homeowners. Their time and effort helps raise awareness of the critical need for affordable homeownership, and how Habitat helps homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Since 1984, Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project has drawn nearly 100,000 enthusiastic volunteers who have rolled up their sleeves to help build or improve homes in partnership with families in need of affordable housing. Together with the Carters, these volunteers have built, renovated or repaired more than 4,000 homes in 14 countries.

The Application Process:
Please note that the application process for the 2017 Carter build is different from that of the volunteer application process with Habitat Manitoba’s volunteer opportunities. All volunteers will need to move through the following process:
  • Registration:
    • Volunteers are required to be 18 year of age or older as of July 8th, 2017
    • Volunteers will be required to fill out an online volunteer application form and accept the Release and Waiver of Liability
    • Volunteer services will review the application based on seniority, availability and skill set
    • As a part of the registration process, applicants will be asked to agree up front that they will either raise funds or pay their participation fee personally or through fundraising initiatives
    • Applicants will be notified of their application status within two weeks of submission
  • Acceptance:
    • Due to a limited number of spaces available at each location, some applicants may be placed on the wait list
    • Once accepted, volunteers will receive a letter outlining the payment process and further instructions.
    • Waitlisted applicants will be notified as soon as possible should space become available
  • Payment:
    • Payments will be made online by the outlined due date once accepted into the work project
    • Volunteers will be scheduled once payment is collected and notified of their schedule beginning May 2017.
