Company Team Building

We don't just believe in change. We build it!

Why Team Building

Team Building with Habitat EBSV provides your company the opportunity to strengthen your team and the Bay Area community. Corporate volunteering will challenge team members to communicate and work together to achieve a tangible outcome. Employees return to the workplace motivated, connected, and inspired. We provide all the tools, materials, and training -- you just provide a tax-deductible donation and the helping hands!

Construction Opportunities

Build and repair homes in your community! Gather your team and head to a Habitat worksite. Corporate volunteers build alongside Habitat’s future homeowners while strengthening their team’s communication skills. For a meaningful and productive experience, teams build from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. and are led by our skilled construction staff -- no experience is required.

Let Habitat plan your volunteer day with perks like t-shirts, food, and even rideshare discount codes when you plan a Premium Team Building day.

Playhouse Opportunities

Provide a child a playful retreat to call their own while supporting affordable housing in the Bay Area. At Habitat for Humanity Playhouse build days, corporate teams assemble and decorate children’s playhouses, which are then donated to families and local community charities. Flexible scheduling and location options make Playhouse Builds easy for teams and events of any size.

“Everyone had a great time and they were so enthusiastic that they finished early!!!!! What touched them deeply was meeting the families from Travis Air Force Base. I heard there were a few grown men with misty eyes. Many of them expressed their gratitude and were overwhelmed by the experience. Thank you!”

How do Playhouse Builds work?
Playhouse Builds can be a half or full day in our Milpitas or Oakland workshop. Teams can also choose a half day at a different location of their choice.  Each playhouse accommodates about 10 volunteers, and the Playhouse Program can accommodate groups of any size! Teams contribute a tax-deductible donation of $3,000 per playhouse to cover the cost of materials and support our work in the community. Habitat EBSV provides all the materials, tools, training, and supervision needed for a great experience. With flexible timing and location options, builds can be tailored to fit a group’s preferences.
Who receives the playhouses?

Habitat selects local families and charities to receive completed playhouses. Many playhouses go to active military and Veteran families, and nonprofits in the area.
