Architecture for Humanity Vancouver posts volunteer opportunities on our site and in on our Facebook page. In some cases we’re looking for help with a specific project, in other cases we’re putting a call out for design help on behalf of a partner.
How can you help communities by design if you can’t share it? Volunteer to contribute to our blog! Post your designs on The Open Architecture Network, a collaborative online tool and network where architects and designers work everyday with community leaders, nonprofits, and educators to improve the built environment.
BE A DESIGN ADVOCATE
We believe in sustainable prosperity for everyone across the world. On the gulf coast in East Biloxi, AFH was able to leverage donations from individuals like yourself into a community design process that rebuilt 45% of the area. Help us start the next meaningful project, here in Vancouver.

Architecture for Humanity Vancouver depends on donations from individuals like you. Our international body receive a majority of its donations from individuals. In 2005, over 25% of funds raised came from people between 7-30 years old. Be it matching contributions from your company to selling gingerbread cookies, any help will be greatly appreciated.
WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF THIS?
By showing an active interest in Architecture for Humanity, you are part of a growing grassroots humanitarian design movement helping to change the perception of the role of the designer. In most circles, architecture and design is seen as a service for the privileged. Our profession is guilty of embracing this ideal. Design should be a profession of inclusion whose talents help those who need them most. It is time for you to change the perception!
