Campus Chapters

What is a campus chapter?

A campus chapter is a student-led, student-initiated organization on a high school or college campus that partners with Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County to fulfill the four functions of a campus chapter.Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County currently has two active Campus Chapters in the service area – Rumson Fair Haven High School and Marlboro High School. Make your school an official partner of Habitat for Humanity.

Campus Chapter

 

The four functions of campus chapters:

  • Building
  • Fundraising
  • Advocating
  • Educating

Learn more about the Four Functions of campus chapters below.

 

How do I start a campus chapter at my school?
In order to be officially recognized as a Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, your group must be chartered by Habitat for Humanity International.

Step 1. Make sure your school does not already have a campus chapter.
Locate a campus chapter to search for your school. If your school is not listed, your school does not already have an active campus chapter.

Step 2. Read the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit.
Before you apply to become a Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, be sure to read the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit (.pdf). This toolkit is a collection of resources to help you learn more about the Campus Chapters program and start organizing your campus chapter. Once you follow the steps detailed in the Prospective Campus Chapters Toolkit, you will be prepared to complete the campus chapter application.

Step 3. Complete and submit the application between Feb. 1 and Sept. 15. 
Once you have a complete understanding of the Campus Chapters program and have determined that your group is ready to apply, download the Campus Chapter Application.

I have reviewed the resources above. I understand the expectations of a Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, and I am ready to apply.

Building
Campus chapters partner with Habitat in Monmouth County to build and rehabilitate homes in partnership with Habitat homeowners. Here’s how to get involved:

Fundraising
C
ampus chapters raise funds to support the work of Habitat for Humanity International and Habitat in Monmouth County. Chapters may contribute through house sponsorship, the tithe program, general donations to our Affiliate, Habitat for Humanity International and Global Village.

Advocating
Campus chapter leaders and members must advocate for affordable housing because building alone will not end poverty housing. Being a Habitat advocate means raising your voice and educating elected officials and your community about poverty housing issues and how legislation can better support affordable housing. 

Visit the following pages to learn more about advocacy:

Educating
Campus chapters educate others in their campus and local communities about the mission of Habitat for Humanity International. This can be done through advocacy, building and fundraising events.
