Learn and Build Experience

Help provide a foundation for families to build a better life for themselves. In the process make new friends, discover a new community and learn how you can make an impact in the world. 

Build, learn and live together in a community setting

Learn and Build Experience trips open up a new world through hands-on educational and community activities as participants serve Habitat’s mission of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. From raising the walls of a new house to small group discussions, there’s no limit to your Habitat impact.

Open to individuals

Learn and Build Experience trips are open to individuals ages 16 to 18. Participants arrive individually to meet with their crew of 20 in our broader group of students. Each one will leave with many friends, an appreciative partner family and priceless memories, plus a new T-shirt too!  Applications for the 2017 Learn and Build Experience will open in winter 2016.

Expand your impact

Learn and Build Experience will make a big impact in the community we will be serving, but we want to expand that effort across the globe. Join the fundraising challenge to expand our reach from one community to the global effort to end poverty housing. In addition to your trip cost, Habitat for Humanity challenges each Learn and Build Experience participant to raise $350 to help build homes across the world.
