Behrend Builders connects both skilled and unskilled volunteers to service-learning opportunities in the greater DC area. Behrend Builders works in low-income neighborhoods in DC to repair, renovate and rebuild low-income family homes, community centers, public schools, homeless shelters, parks and other vital community spaces.

Volunteering with Behrend Builders is always an amazing learning experience. Behrend volunteers not only learn valuable construction skills like painting and basic carpentry, but also have the opportunity to explore and engage with social justice issues that the DC community struggles with everyday.
