Welcome to Youth United LV
The future is building
Youth United Las Vegas is a Habitat for Humanity program run by youth and for youth ages 5 to 25. It brings young people together from all walks of life to play active roles in transforming their communities. Youth United mobilizes young people to sponsor and build a house with their local Habitat affiliate.
Youth United teaches leadership and teamwork skills
Through Youth United, students gain a better understanding of their communitties and poverty housing. All students are engaged in fund-raising, education and advocacy activities and those over 16 help with the actual house construction.
The four goals of Youth United
> Involve youth in their communities
> Engage youth in Habitat’s mission of eliminating poverty housing.
> Foster teamwork among diverse groups of youth.
> Develop youth leaders.
Youth United meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10:00 am at the Habitat office located at 1401 N. Decatur Blvd. #35. Please call the office the day prior to confirm meeting.
