Collegiate Challenge

A Collegiate Challenge trip may be the best school break trip you will ever have.  Not only do you help people in need—you’ll have fun doing it!  Groups spend one week working with the local affiliate, community and partner families to help eliminate poverty housing in the area.  You will have the chance to:

  • Improve your skills.
  • Connect with new people in a new place.
  • Put your faith into action.
  • Make a real difference in Habitat for Humanity’s work of eliminating substandard housing.

Out of state universities or high school groups help for a week during school breaks.  Cost: $150 per student, which includes housing, lunches and T-shirt.

Find out about joining us for next year’s Collegiate Challenge.

For the 2019 Collegiate Challenge, Central Oklahoma Habitat was pleased to host volunteers from Carthage College, Seton University and the U.S. Air Force Academy. Freezing cold weather didn’t discourage these intrepid students, who made the long trek south from New Jersey, Wisconsin and Colorado, respectively. The volunteers worked on new homes for several Habitat families and joined us for a home dedication celebration.

We couldn’t pull off a big annual event like this without the support of some great local people. We’re extremely grateful for Putnam City United Methodist Church and First Christian Church of Moore for providing student housing. A huge thanks as well to Panera Bread, Johnnie’s Charcoal Grill, Qdoba and Upper Crust Wood Fired Pizza, who all generously donated lunches to feed our hard-working volunteers!

All volunteer opportunities require that you complete a volunteer release form / waiver.
