Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Austin Habitat brings together youth from across Central Texas to learn about affordable homeownership, gain leadership skills, and cultivate a dedication to service.

By engaging with Austin's future leaders, policy makers, and influencers, our goal is to spread awareness about the need for decent, affordable shelter and its profound impact on our community and economy. We offer opportunities for youth to get invovled in their community, become educated about community needs, develop leadership skills, foster teamwork, receive hands-on training and become advocates for their passion.


Out of concern for the safety of children and due to child labor laws, Austin Habitat follows a very strict Youth Volunteer Policy. While youth under 16 aren't allowed to volunteer on active construction sites, there are lots of other ways to get involved.
