Habitat for Humanity Ireland Schools Programme opens the mind of students to a world of global issues and practical volunteering experience – changing your life for the good of others.

Every year, secondary students aged 16+ travel overseas with Habitat for Humanity to help families to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. The students commit to the team by attending training, team building, and by actively fundraising. They experience firsthand the impact of poverty housing and help make a lasting difference to entire communities. We encourage volunteers to become a voice for safe shelter when they return home; inspiring others to help us reach many more families in need.

By taking part, students will have the opportunity to:

▶ Make a visible impact
▶ Work as part of a team and develop new skills
▶ Experience a different culture and learn about global development issues

If your school or youth club are not volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Ireland, why not join our Easter Youth Build in Romania?
