Spring Break with Durham Habitat

Posted |
Durham Habitat will be hosting students from six different schools during their respective spring breaks to help build or rehabilitate homes for families in need of affordable housing. The nearly 130 students visiting Durham are participating in Habitat for Humanity’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge.

The schools include:

For the past 25 years, more than 229,000 students have spent their school breaks volunteering across the country through Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge program, donating more than $23 million to Habitat affiliates. 

The Collegiate Challenge program is one of the many programs Habitat has to engage youth ages 5 to 25 in Habitat’s work. In addition to the ongoing support State Farm® offices provide to local Habitat affiliates across the United States, State Farm has served as the national corporate sponsor of Habitat for Humanity’s youth programs since 2007.
