Youth Volunteers

In addition to home construction for volunteers age 16 and up, and retail work in the ReStore for ages 14 and up, HFHSTW believes that the youth of our community are a key element to the future fulfillment of our mission. With this in mind, HFHSTW has developed a Youth Opportunities Booklet to provide samples of creative activities and programs which engage and retain youth involvement and support.

The following is just a sampling of some of the creative solutions Habitat for Humanity affiliates nationwide have utilized to engage youth. Through these activities, youth under age of 16 or over, are truly able to develop an understanding and engage in furthering the mission of Habitat for Humanity.

Activities are targeted to different ages, ranging from age five to collegiate level students. The activities listed include:
  • classroom lesson plans
  • crafts
  • fundraising ideas
  • building projects
  • ways to raise awareness in the community

While the list is long, we are always looking for new ideas for youth to understand and join our mission. We encourage you to contact Katie Melucci, Volunteer and Procurement Coordinator, with any question or comments by email or by calling 985-893-3172, ext. 222.
