A Campus Chapter is a non-corporate, student-run, student-led organization on a secondary school or university campus that partners with a local Habitat affiliate.
Habitat for Humanity believes that young people are the builders and leaders of today and tomorrow. In that spirit, we seek to offer young people opportunities to partner with Habitat for Humanity in a sustainable and productive way. We continuously seek to create nurturing environments where youth can develop skills in community leadership and teamwork while providing continued valuable resources toward elimination of poverty housing.
