Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) strives to provide affordable housing to low-income families in our community, while cultivating a strong network of future leaders. 100% of HYP membership dues and money raised through fundraising activities will be used to fund member activities including socials, fundraising events, volunteer days and other member events. HYP is committed to achieving the following goals each year:
Habitat Young Professionals of Charlotte Objectives:
1. HYP Fundraising Events
Each year, HYP aims to raise $35,000 to co-sponsor construction of a new home for Habitat Charlotte. Events such as Habitat Mud Volleyball and other quarterly socials will help us achieve this goal. Being a partner sponsor of a Habitat home means members will have guaranteed opportunities to build. Please check our Events opportunities (under the 'About Us' tab) for upcoming ways to get involved with HYP. Additionally, 25% of membership dues collected and a minimum of 40% of funds raised through special events are allocated to the HYP Partner House Sponsorship. If you'd like to help us reach our fundraising goal to change the life of a family in need, please join today!
2. HYP Membership Growth
One of our main goals is to fortify our current member base and then build our numbers from there. With more members, we have more impact. Join us today!
3. HYP Volunteer Days
Creating and preserving affordable housing for families in need is the cornerstone of Habitat for Humanity's mission. HYP strives to give members ample opportunity to participate in Habitat's mission. There are opportunities to serve both on project sites and in the ReStore. Stay informed about volunteer opportunities checking out our Activities Calendar.
HYP is a great place to network with like-minded young professionals in the Charlotte area. We aim to make that very successful through volunteer events, as well as social events each month.
