The Youth Leadership Conference and Young Leaders Summit is one way we offer our current volunteers a deeper understanding of their generation’s ability to be the cornerstone of continuing Habitat’s mission. We want participants to leave with a deeper understanding of housing as a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. This conference will mobilize participants with the tools to further engage their peers to continue service.
Our objectives include:
- Empower participants to be Habitat leaders who commission their peers with continuing to be the mouthpiece for affordable housing for generations to come.
- Promote appropriate youth engagement opportunities that will build a community of young service leaders that will end poverty housing.
- Promote innovation and engagement that is relevant for youth audiences.
- Create an experience that intentionally prepares our volunteers to mobilize their peers to lead a life of service.
