Learn and Build Experience: location, dates, cost and application

This year, Learn and Build Experience will be in only one location:
Des Moines, Iowa - July 10-16

Des Moines is a city of change. Once known as a flyover city, over the past 15 years Des Moines has seen huge transformation in both commerce and culture. Many new businesses, restaurants and shops are starting to pop up in the Midwest city. However, with change comes growing pains, as more than 10,000 families are in need of decent and affordable housing in and around the city.

Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity invites you to learn, build and Rock the Block® in Iowa’s capital city. A Rock the Block event is a communitywide initiative that engages neighborhood residents, corporate sponsors, homeowners and volunteers in revitalizing their neighborhood. Our event will encompass 15-25 owner-occupied home repair projects as well as community space improvements, allowing GDM Habitat to serve multiple families during your Learn and Build Experience week.

The program cost for the 2016 Learn and Build Experience will be $650 plus travel costs.
