Collegiate Challenge

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:

  1. Improve your leadership skills.
  2. Develop and strengthen friendships.
  3. See the impact your work is having on communities.
  4. Learn more about poverty housing issues and how you can help.
  5. Visit new areas of the country.
  6. Affect a global cause by advocating on behalf of poverty housing issues.
  7. Help provide a simple, decent, affordable place to live for people in need.
