Habitat Young Professionals

Join HYP, and Help Promote the Habitat Mission

Our HYP, "Habitat Young Professionals" group seeks to engage socially conscious young professionals in our community to support the mission of Habitiat for Humanity. HYP brings like-minded individuals ages 21-39 together to share their time, energy and resources to support Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County; to further its mission of helping families with low income attain affordable housing; and to increase its impact within our community.  We hope to encourage the development of tomorrow's leaders through volunteer and philanthropic support of Habitat's mission.

Objectives

  • Education and Advocacy: HYP hosts events which promote community awareness of Habitat's mission. Members may also participate in advocacy efforts in support of affordable housing in South Carolina.
  • Fundraising: In addition to fundraising for Habitat Greenville, HYP funds support homeowner education, home construction, and home repairs for families in need who own their home.
  • Volunteer Services: HYP members volunteer on Habitat home builds, in the ReStores, and at Habitat fundraisers.
