Every year during spring, summer and winter breaks college students from across the country travel to Melbourne to help Habitat 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.
Join a group of dynamic women committed to ending poverty housing through building and fundraising for this week-long build event. Recruit a team of friends or bring a group from work and pitch in to help build a family's future!
Organize a group of volunteers from your faith community, youth group, school or circle of friends and join us on the build site or at the ReStore. We have several single-day or ongoing options for small groups looking to give back. Must be 16 years of age to volunteer.
Are you a Brevard area high school or college student looking for a deeper connection with Habitat? Consider starting a Campus Chapter at your school to volunteer, fundraise, advocate, and educate for Habitat in Brevard County. Contact our volunteer team for more information.
Spend your spring, summer or winter break with Habitat in Brevard Count! Collegiate Challenge is Habitat's alternative break program giving groups from all over the country a chance to spend a week making a lasting impact with a Habitat affiliate. We welcome groups at any time of the year, pending availability, and can help secure housing and some meals.
Who's hungry? Lunch volunteers work with us to schedule a day when they can bring food and fixings for the hungry crews that work on our construction sites. Volunteers have done everything from grilling hot dogs at the site, to making lasagna, to purchasing a pizza or serving up sandwiches, chips and fruit. We provide a record of volunteer time and if the donor provides a receipt, a donation acknowledgement that can be used for tax purposes.
If you are scheduled for a lunch and are unable to bring it please let our Volunteer Coordinator know at least 24 hours in advance.
