Youth ages 16-18 can build a #Habitat for Humanity home this summer with the Learn and Build Experience program
It's that time of year again! The Youth Programs department of Habitat for Humanity International is now accepting applications for its Learn and Build Experience (LBE) trips. These trips offer youth ages 16-18 an opportunity to travel to a different state or country and build a Habitat home with a family in need of decent and affordable shelter. This is an incredible cultural immersion trip where team members help build homes, meet other students who are interested in lending their hands and their voice to end poverty housing, and experience a different community. The best part about LBE is that youth who are unable to afford the $550 trip fee or the airfare to reach the destination, can apply for scholarships. I think this is one of the best kept secrets in the world of Habitat! Learn more about the program here.
April 2nd is International Children's Book day! I'd like to recommend a children's book about Habitat for Humanity called "Dewey Doo-it Builds a House" by Brahm Wenger and Alan Green. You can find it at barnesandnoble.com for $1.99. Read it to your loved ones or volunteer to read to a class at an elementary in your community.
Overview: Dewey Doo-It is an energetic little guy with a heart of gold. When he sees someone in trouble he immediately tries to help. In this story Dewey Doo-it discovers that his friend Zoe lives in a drafty old house that leaks when its rains. Dewey and his friends decide it's time to help.
