The AmeriCorps Build-a-Thon
Engaging and revitalizing communities through national service
The AmeriCorps Build-a-Thon is here. Our annual event brings more than 400 Habitat AmeriCorps members and alums from across the country together for a week of building, fellowship and service. This year, the Build-a-Thon is hosted in partnership with Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, Habitat for Humanity of Wake County and Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity.
For AmeriCorps members, the Build-a-Thon is an opportunity to step away from their day-to-day service, reconnect with their peers and reflect on their larger personal journey. It’s going to be a great week, equal parts fun and hard work. This gathering of Habitat AmeriCorps members, 40 partner families and volunteers from three communities will result in 10 new homes, two rehabbed homes and 26 homes repaired.
