Habitat Young Professionals
Habitat Young Professionals supports local Habitat’s service while engaging young professionals as leaders, volunteers, advocates, educators, and donors.
Habitat Young Professionals are grassroots volunteers who work within a local chapter to create change in their communities. Through the diverse demographic of young professionals and their talents, chapters create unity in sharing the vision of Habitat nationally and globally.
