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.

Featured event

Act! Speak! Build! Week

Act! Speak! Build! Week goes beyond the build site as volunteers advocate for decent, affordable shelter by engaging elected officials and their community to eradicate poverty housing.

Join our 125 groups in advocating for S. 2052. This U.S. Senate bill will allow nonprofits like Habitat for Humanity to apply for weatherization grants through the department of energy. Visit to SoundOff to your elected officials about how S. 2052 could save about 30 million low-income families $250-$450 a month.
