Volunteers


Searching for something more than mundane?

Then a week with Frontier Housing may be just what you need! Throughout the year, Frontier hosts a limited number of college volunteer groups, gathering up to 12 enthusiastic students at one time to enjoy a week with our construction team! From roofing to ditch digging, volunteers may have the opportunity to do it all!
