Dow and Habitat for Humanity International have been building great things together since the early 1980s. Dow's commitment and contributions reach beyond science and technology to embrace the Human Element and to help provide sustainable, affordable housing to those in need. Dow lends support to Habitat in many ways, including house sponsorship, product donation and volunteer work crews at builds around the world.
Habitat for Humanity is excited to expand the significant longtime support of Dow and its employees into an opportunity to match the professional skills of Dow retirees with project needs at local Habitat affiliates around the country. We are looking for enthusiastic people with the ability to donate their expertise to various projects. The available opportunities will help you gain experience in a nonprofit setting in the community. Available opportunities include projects such as assisting with business development and helping to implement "green building" and youth education programs.
