There are many ways that young people ages 5-25 can make a difference. Youth United is a Habitat for Humanity program that brings community youth together to fully sponsor and build a Habitat Home. The youth are the leaders, planners, fundraisers, public relations specialists and builders in this program. Youth ages 5 to 25 work together to raise money and awareness while youth ages 16 to 25 build the house. The program helps to teach young people to become leaders and people from different ages, backgrounds, faiths and organizations to work together.
Through Youth United, youth can…
Fundraise through Nickels for Nails,
Advocate by participating in Act! Speak! Build! Week 2008,
Partner with Habitat by forming a campus chapter on their high school or college, Build on the Youth United home if they’re 16-25, and
Engage in various age-appropriate activities if they’re younger.
Over one hundred schools, families, and youth groups have been involved with Habitat for Humanity Greater Los Angeles this school year, and literally thousands of students have gotten involved. The future is Building a Greater Los Angeles! Be a Part of it!
