Youth Build: #GenYBuilds! has been generously sponsored by Genworth Canada and is a program designed for young adults ages 18-25 to discover purpose and get involved in the communities where they live.
Participants are invited to work on the construction of a new Habitat home alongside homeowners and other volunteers. They will learn valuable leadership skills and, most importantly, help a family in need achieve homeownership.
GenYBuilds! is open to groups on four dates throughout October and November. If you, or someone you know, would like to get involved, please contact us by e-mail.
We would like to thank our volunteers for their continued dedication and support. They give their time in many ways on the construction sites, at our ReStores, and at special events. The effects of their kindness are far-reaching.
Here is a video of two of our volunteers at our Montgomery Build site on why they volunteer with us:
