Youth United is an exciting initiative through Habitat for Humanity that invites high school youth to work together to fund and build homes in their own communities. Targeting young, enthusiastic volunteers to build homes, Youth United develops leadership skills and engages youth in positive service experiences.
Youth United is now recruiting high school students (incoming freshman - seniors) to participate in this city-wide volunteer youth group. Youth United members will have access to specialized construction volunteer opportunities through Habitat for Humanity of Evansville.

It will benefit your community.
Young people energized by community service will become dynamic community members and leaders. Habitat for Humanity projects can unify diverse racial, political, sectarian and ethnic groups, and build lasting relationships that strengthen individuals and communities.
It will benefit each young person involved.
Working with Habitat for Humanity is a great way for young people to put their energy and commitment to good use and realize that they can make a tangible difference in the lives of others.
It will benefit a local family currently living in poverty housing.
Thanks to this new group of Habitat volunteers, another family in your community will enjoy the blessings of a simple, decent home.
