WHAT A COLLEGE CHAPTER DOES:
Participating in a build is a great hands-on opportunity. Be part of Habitat’s mission and see the results of your labor. All campus chapter build projects must be done in partnership with your local Habitat affiliate. Volunteers and campus chapter help build Habitat Homes and repair homes in the community.
Campus chapters can help raise funds for Habitat. This plays a key role is Habitat’s mission of eliminating poverty. Campus chapters are asked to help raise funds in order to support our affiliate with local projects.
In order to be successful, the school and local community must be informed about Habitat’s mission. In addition, the community can be educated about the current build and repair projects. Educating your peers is a crucial way to gain community support. This will also increase participants and volunteers to join Habitat for Humanity. Attending functions and fairs at your local university helps get the word out about Habitat.
