Delaware County Habitat for Humanity Youth United is an entirely youth-led group, ages 5-25, working together to eliminate substandard housing in Delaware County.
The Youth United group is run by an all youth steering committee and 7 sub-committees: Construction Committee, Education/Advocacy Committee, Recruitment Committee, Trips Committee, Special Events Committee, Public Relations Committee, and Fundraising Committee. The group is gaining leadership skills while they plan and execute special events, fundraisers, construction build days, and community presentations.
The youth in this amazing group are working towards their goal of 100,000.00 to fully fund a Habitat home, and build it in partnership with a family from their community. Youth United plans to break ground on the ‘Youth United House’ in summer 2008. The group is creating a sustainable project, Youth United, that will increase Delaware Habitat’s construction by one house annually.
