Help Habitat build houses
Youth United is a Habitat for Humanity program run by kids and for kids ages 5 to 25. It brings young people together from all walks of life to play active roles in transforming their communities. Youth United mobilizes young people to sponsor and build a house with their local Habitat affiliate.
The four goals of Youth United:
- Involve youth in their community.
- Engage youth in Habitat’s mission of eliminating poverty housing.
- Foster teamwork among diverse groups of youth.
- Develop youth leaders.
Youth United teaches leadership and teamwork skills to kids of all ages.
Among other activities, kids 9-15 can make t-shirts for fundraisers, design websites, build flowerboxes and help clean up the construction site.
