AmeriCorps Build-a-Thon

This annual event engages communities and members in a weeklong blitz build.

Each year, our Habitat AmeriCorps members and alumni from across the country gather for a weeklong blitz build that engages the community.

AmeriCorps Build-a-Thon is held in partnership with local Habitat organizations and their surrounding communities, helping meet their needs for safe, affordable housing while celebrating the partnership and AmeriCorps members’ service and impact. 

“Of all the incredible support and aid the federal government has given to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast after Katrina, the best thing they ever gave us came in a gray T-shirt with the AmeriCorps emblem.”
— Jim Pate, former CEO of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, the 2015 AmeriCorps Build-a-Thon host
