This year’s theme, "Building Through Service," highlights the tireless efforts of Habitat AmeriCorps members to help build and strengthens communities throughout the U.S. They are building hope, communities, homes, families, capacity, strong volunteers – through their service, the possibilities for building are as diverse as the needs Habitat strives to meet and the people we partner with. AmeriCorps members also receive as much as they give, and the training and experience they receive through Habitat OC and Habitat International are helping to build strong leaders and, in turn, build our future.
So what are the AmeriCorps doing…
Members are attending core classes on Capacity Building, Conflict Resolution, Disaster Response and Recovery, Leadership Compass, Member Relations / HR Opportunities and Poverty Housing.
There are also elective classes in Advocacy, Community Mapping, Green Building, Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, Social Media and a variety of Team Building exercises.
We can't wait to hear about their trip.
