AmeriCorps was created in 1994 to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement when it matters most. Habitat for Humanity International was one for the first organizations to partner with AmeriCorps. For the past 25 years, Habitat AmeriCorps has provided opportunities for individuals to learn new skills, such as volunteer engagement, project management and homebuilding.
What is Habitat AmeriCorps?
Habitat AmeriCorps is a hands-on experience that provides individuals with an opportunity to learn and develop new skills and confidence while serving a critical role in helping Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future for themselves and their families. Habitat AmeriCorps members serve on an active build site or at a local Habitat assisting homeowner families, volunteers and staff.
