Volunteer Role Description: 

Assist guests and offer tours of the 2024 Southern Living Idea House in Kiawah River, a coastal community located on Johns Island. A portion of ticket sales from each tour will benefit the amazing work of Sea Island Habitat for Humanity, Communities in School of South Carolina, and Mother Emanuel AME Church .  
As a volunteer, you will get to know the gorgeous details that went into this 4,400 square-foot farmhouse-style home with waterfront views. With thoughtful consideration for the natural landscape and an appreciation for the Lowcountry lifestyle, this year’s Idea House is designed to reference the simple beauty of the farmhouses that have historically informed the architectural vernacular of the region. Carefully positioned between two sprawling live oaks, our main house and adjacent carriage house make the most of their site on the banks of Abbapoola Creek, with views from nearly every space in the house (including the powder room!) and a floor plan that emphasizes an easygoing flow between indoors and out. Even the smallest details have been selected with the Charleston community in mind. In addition to including handcrafted products from area farm vendors, the team is also curating a collection of local art, like the sweetgrass baskets of 6th-generation artist Andrea Cayetano-Jefferson. Together, these elements celebrate Lowcountry traditions, honor the neighborhood’s agrarian roots, and welcome the future in a mindful way.  
Volunteers should dress comfortably. You might choose a classy southern vibe or wear a tee shirt from a benefiting organization. Pick shoes you can easily move around in, and represent our partners positively by avoiding overly casual items like ripped jeans and flip flops. 
Shift times are designed to provide volunteers with a 20 minute orientation before giving tours. 
This is an amazing and fun way to support Sea Island Habitat and our other community partner organizations.
