Youth and Education Partnerships
With their special energy, enthusiasm and creativity, youth and education groups can play a unique role in Habitat’s mission to eliminate poverty housing and create awareness of the need for decent, affordable housing for all people.
Working with Habitat lets volunteers gain first-hand knowledge about issues of affordable housing, and provides them with the opportunity to work toward a solution. They also learn new skills and develop a life-long spirit of service at the same time.
We encourage youth to be involved in any of our group or individual volunteer opportunities. However, certain age guidelines must be strictly enforced:
Most construction site tasks require volunteers to be 16 years of age or older and at least 18 years of age to be on a roof. There are limited construction tasks that can be done by volunteers under 16 and must be accompanied by adult supervision. All volunteers must fill out and sign a Release & Waiver of Liability. Minors must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
Youth and education groups can join the work of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties in the following ways:
- Donating financially to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties
- Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties
- Educating your group and others about housing-related issues
- Advocating for public policy that supports affordable housing
