Youth and Families

Young people play a vital role in the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity


Individual Youth Opportunities

Youth gardening.

Construction and Home Repair

Most people think about construction when they think of volunteering with Habitat. Through these opportunities, volunteers build or rehab homes in partnership with families in the community. We also have a Home Repair program, which helps homeowners repair and maintain their homes.

Must be at least 16 years old with a chaperone; anyone 18 years or older can volunteer on their own.

Non-Construction Opportunities

You don't have to pick up a hammer to support Twin Cities Habitat! We have a variety of non-construction volunteer roles for youth:

Looking for opportunities for kids younger than 14? Check out Sleep in Heavenly Peace (building and delivering beds to kids in need) or Open Arms (delivering meals to chronically ill people and their families).

Stay tuned for more information about our Annual Family Volunteer Day!


Campus Chapters

Campus chapters volunteer, fundraise, educate, and advocate on behalf of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.  We currently have campus chapters at the University of Minnesota, Hamline University, Macalester College, and The University of St. Thomas.  Join an existing chapter or start your own!

High schoolers can start chapters, too! Questions? Email Lizzy Reilly at lizzy.reilly@tchabitat.org.
