The Berea College Collegiate Chapter of Habitat for Humanity works with the local Habitat International Affiliate to serve residents in Madison and Clark counties. Each Saturday the program organizes volunteer opportunities, including home improvement, work at the local Habitat Re-Store, and Rent-A-Worker projects. Student volunteers also participate annually in the Habitat International Collegiate Challenge, which serves as an alternative Spring Break. Recent destinations have included Pennsylvania, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Alabama.

Working with Habitat has been the highlight of my college career. It has given me a wide variety of skills, connections with others, and memories that will last a lifetime! It is one of the best ways to get out in our communities, doing hands-on work with tangible results. If you have the time, I highly recommend volunteering because there is so much to learn from jumping in where needed. Service is essential to the world around us, and this is one of many ways to do that!
