Recruiting Organization: Habitat for Humanity International's Collegiate Challenge Program

Various locations across the United States are available: Started in 1990, Collegiate Challenge is one of Habitat for Humanity International’s longest-running student volunteer programs. It is unique in offering year-round volunteer opportunities for teams of young adults to build for a week at various Habitat locations across the United States. Groups can choose to volunteer close to school or on the other side of the country. No prior experience is needed to volunteer. All that’s needed is a group of five or more students ages 18 or older (chaperones over the age of 25 also welcome).

During a Collegiate Challenge trip, your group will likely arrive on Sunday afternoon, and depart the following Saturday morning. Build activities occur Monday through Friday or Tuesday through Saturday, but the schedule varies by Habitat location. Projects may include building or repairing a home, assisting in a Habitat ReStore, landscaping projects or another type of assignment that helps meet Habitat’s goals to support the community. Some locations may plan an evening activity for your group, such as dinner with a Habitat partner family, but generally your evenings will be free.
