Habitat for Humanity’s Teacher Fellows program educates teachers about Habitat for Humanity and the volunteer opportunities available to engage their students in Habitat’s mission. During a weeklong summer build, participants will build with Habitat as well as learn about the local community and educational resources Habitat provides.
As part of participation in the Habitat Teacher Fellows program, teachers will commit to leading a new Habitat project with students they work with.
Examples of projects include: starting a Youth United group or a campus chapter, organizing a Collegiate Challenge or Global Village trip, or utilizing Habitat for Humanity’s classroom lessons with their students.
Teachers will also be encouraged to share their knowledge and resources with colleagues.
