Learn and Build Experience

You can help provide safe, decent and affordable shelter for some of the 1.6 billion people around the world who live in poverty housing, plus travel, meet new people and build a house!


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 cooking nightly dinners, 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 15 other students as strangers. Each one will leave with many friends, an appreciative partner family and priceless memories, plus a new T-shirt too! Applications for 2015 trips closed March 1. Participants will be notified of their acceptance by April.
