Habitat Youth Ambassadors (HYA)
Since 2003, youth throughout Forsyth County have united for a common goal: helping a well deserving, low-income family build and purchase a safe, decent, and affordable home. Our Habitat Youth Ambassadors (HYA) also learn about the need for, and advocate for, the elimination of substandard housing.
HYA members raise $65,000 each year to fund a Habitat home for a local partner family in need of affordable housing. The students provide the volunteer labor to construct the house, and plan and lead the house dedication ceremony. HYA is sponsoring its 14th house this year alongside the Habitat Young Professionals.
However, youth do not have to be part of a HYA Habitat Club to get involved! If you are a youth, or your child is interested in getting involved please contact us. We welcome all youth! Click here to see how you can get involved!
If you’re seeking fun, engaging service opportunities in the greater Winston-Salem community, consider joining our Habitat Youth Ambassadors (HYA) program. HYA is open to any high school student in Forsyth County, and we participate in group builds, special events and leadership development opportunities year-round.
