Youth United Build

We're excited to have completed our first Youth United house in 2009. Construction took place on a lot located in the Vineyard neighborhood in the area of 39th and Elmwood Ave.  

The Youth United Build is designed to mobilize young people between the ages of 5 and 25 and give them an opportunity to take leadership of their own Habitat KC build project.  Youth United is a program of Habitat International that engages youth in the work of Habitat for Humanity.  While you have to be 16 to work out on the construction sites, there are a variety of ways that kids under 16 can contribute to our mission.  For this project, youth of all ages will work together to raise money, plan events, and build a new home for a hard working Kansas City family. 

If you'd like more information on our Youth United Program or to get involved with this project, please contact Dana.
