Youth Opportunities & School Clubs

 

Here at Habitat for Humanity of Burlington and Mercer Counties we believe in the impact younger generations can have on our communities and the rest of the world.

It is our duty to inspire and encourage youth to become actively involved in service at a young age so they may better understand the needs of others and the best way to meet those needs.

By spreading awareness of our mission and taking part in it, youth become part of a large network of dedicated individuals focused on helping individuals build homes, communities, and hope.

Future Framers

Future Framers is a club designed for high school students that have shown interest in Habitat for Humanity and wish to engage and support the organization. As Future Framers, high school students have a responsibility to not only frame houses, but perspectives, influencing the perception of affordable housing.

Clubs are focused on service. The goal is to get younger individuals involved and see the direct impact Habitat makes. Students receive the tools necessary to initiate/continue a campus chapter or create a volunteer group.
