Summer Internship Program

Looking for a meaningful way to spend your time this summer?

Join our summer internship program at the Habitat ReStores. 

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you have service hours to complete for graduation? Do you want to make  a meaningful impact on your community? Then why not become a summer intern with the Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver ReStores? The ReStores are home improvement thrift outlets where all profits support Habitat Denver’s mission to provide affordable housing in our community.

The Habitat Denver Summer Internship Program is an opportunity for high school students to gain valuable skills, learn about affordable housing issues, and make a difference by serving in a Habitat Denver ReStore one shift a week over the course of the summer.

Application for the ReStore Summer Internship 2024 are now closed.

Here's what past participants have said!

“The internship offers real world experience because you learn how to work in a store and how to handle people.” 
– ReStore intern Claire. 

“I would recommend this internship to others because it helps build a foundation for your future. I’ve never worked a job before, and the internship helped me work with people better. I learned to work with a team to build furniture.” 
– ReStore intern Keren. 

“One customer told me that he is grateful for our generation for helping out around the community.”  “It was a great feeling.”
