Other ways to get involved

Youth & student groups

There are many ways for young people to get involved in the mission of Habitat for Humanity. You must be 16 or older to build on a Habitat construction site. See below for ideas & check out Habitat’s youth programs.

  • Host a fundraising or education event. Host a community garage sale, dinner theater, music concert, or play at your school or congregation. Proceeds from ticket sales could help purchase a front door or a new roof. Contact Alicia, Director of Resource Development, at alicia@habitatcd.org.

  • Organize a collection drive. Collect and recycle bottles and cans to raise funds. Host a tool drive. Let us know that you’re interested in holding a collection to support our building efforts, and we’ll provide you with our current Wish List. Reach out to build@habitatcd.org

  • Start a Campus Chapter. Are you dedicated to learning more about Habitat’s mission and want to inspire others at your high school or college? Start a Campus Chapter to help Habitat build and advocate here in the Capital District and around the world. Campus chapters are offered one free build day each semester! Learn more about starting a campus chapter here.

We also accept donations directly from restaurants in the form of catered lunches or gift cards for our build site volunteers. Donating lunch or snacks is a great way to get your name out to the hundreds of volunteers that work with Habitat each year. Contact build@habitatcd.org
