Habitat for Humanity

What will you build this year?

We invite 35 participants to join us in one of the best weeks of the year — Alternative Spring Break 2014!  The Washington College Habitat Team will depart campus, on Saturday, March 8, and return on Saturday, March 15.  In between, we will work a full 40-hour work week, with Columbus Area Habitat for Humanity and NeighborWorks Columbus, in Columbus, GA.

What do you need to do to apply?

First, fill out the application found on this site.  Second, ask an advisor, mentor, or supervisor, to fill out the evaluation form, and return both by Friday, January 24, 2014.

What does it cost?

The participant fee for this program is $250.  This fee helps to cover the cost of food, lodging, transportation, registration fees, and entertainment for the entire week.

Are there scholarships available?

YES!  The Washington College Habitat for Humanity Club works very hard to keep costs down and fundraise throughout the year, so that we may offer scholarships to our participants.  Please contact Maria Rose Hynson, at mhynson2@washcoll.edu, to inquire about a scholarship.

Still have questions?

While spending a whole week far from campus, in close quarters with your 34 newest BFF’s may seem a little daunting, the truth is that we were all new to this, at some point.  Feel free to ask questions of any member of the 2013 team, especially the Habitat Club officers — they will tell you all about our adventures, and what you can expect for the week.
