Collegiate Challenge

Every year during the spring, college students from across the country travel to Denver to build simple, decent, affordable homes for low-income families in need. The volunteers are participants of Habitat for Humanity International’s Collegiate Challenge, which is one of the country’s largest alternative spring break programs and offers the opportunity for students to gain new skills, make new friends, and make a meaningful impact on the community. 

Youth Under 14

We are not offering opportunities for youth under 14 years old at this time. If you’d like to be contacted when we are offering youth opportunities, please contact Lauren Kirwin.
