Habitat Durham Youth Build Day – July 12, 2017
Habitat for Humanity Durham is having a Youth Build Day on Wednesday, July 12, at its CentreTowne build site on 372 Centre Street South, Oshawa.
For the first time, Habitat for Humanity Durham is acknowledging the Indigenous Youth in Durham Region who will be joining us on this day along with other Durham youth communities, sponsored by Genworth Canada. There will be entertainment, food, fun activities, and of course building. All participants must be 16 years of age or older. No experience is required. All equipment & training is provided. Youth participating are encouraged to fundraise for the day, however it is not required.
July 12 is part of a week-long national build initiative where Habitat for Humanity Canada is celebrating across the nation the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. It is the largest initiative in Habitat for Humanity’s history in Canada to build 150 homes together with 150 Habitat partner families from coast to coast to provide affordable homeownership opportunities. Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter will be building in person at our Habitat in Edmonton & Manitoba during the week-long celebration of July 9 – 14th, 2017.
Habitat for Humanity Durham has been building a 24 unit townhome community in Oshawa, called CentreTowne. We have completed 12 homes to date where 57 children now live. By the end of our development, there will be over 100 children who experience the safety of living in a home that they can call their own. It is a piece of land which has become a neighbourhood.
