Youth Programs

  Habitat’s youth programs seek to engage young people ages 5 to 25 and involve them as leaders in the work of Habitat for Humanity. There are many different ways to get involved in order to help support Habitat’s mission of eliminating poverty housing.

 

Second annual Film Fest now accepting entries

How do you “Reconstruct Normal” when it comes to sharing Habitat’s mission or details about poverty housing and volunteering? We want to see how you are changing what is normal in the hearts and lives of those around you. The contest is open to participants ages 14 to 35. Videos must be under five minutes in length. The winner will receive a free trip to our conference Nov. 7-9 in Charlotte, N.C., as well have the video featured on our website and in various Habitat publications.
