Looking for a way to spend your spring break? Want to come visit the southwest? Register with Collegiate Challenge through Habitat for Humanity International to spend a week with Mesilla Valley Habitat!
What is Collegiate Challenge?
Collegiate Challenge is Habitat for Humanity’s year-round alternative break program that provides opportunities for students from youth groups, high schools and colleges to spend a week of their school break building a house in partnership with a Habitat for Humanity affiliate in the United States.
A Collegiate Challenge trip may be the best school break trip you will ever have. Not only do you help people in need — it’s also fun! You’ll have the chance to improve your carpentry skills, connect with new people in a new place and put your faith into action by making a real difference in Habitat for Humanity’s work of eliminating substandard housing.
Seven reasons YOU should participate in Collegiate Challenge:
- Improve your leadership skills.
- Develop and strengthen friendships.
- See the impact your work is having on communities.
- Learn more about poverty housing issues and how you can help.
- Visit new areas of the country.
- Affect a global cause by advocating on behalf of poverty housing issues.
- Help provide a simple, decent, affordable place to live for people in need.
