HABITAT STUDENT AMBASSADORS

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Habitat Student Ambassadors (HSA) program gives students an opportunity to support Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco’s mission of affordable homeownership through volunteerism, advocacy, and service learning.

 

WHAT IS HSA? 

HSA is a fair and inclusive advocacy program in which any student is able to support Habitat Greater San Francisco's mission, whatever their ability. We want all students to acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their academic and professional careers.

As we help you build experience working within the nonprofit sector, you'll gain in-depth knowledge of Habitat's mission of affordable homeownership.

Service learning is the central focus of the HSA Program. Whether your school requires a certain number of volunteer hours, or whether your passion for housing justice has driven you to create an extracurricular school project, our Volunteer Services team will work closely with you on designing a project plan and timeline.

 

EXAMPLES OF HSA PROJECTS 

  • Advocate for Habitat Greater San Francisco at community and volunteer events
  • Photograph volunteer activities
  • Shoot and edit a short promotional video
  • Wage a social media campaign on affordable housing legislation
  • Use your multilingual skills to help us reach as many community members as possible, including in our Habitat homeowner surveys
  • Help us research sustainable building practices for our homes
  • Form a Habitat Club at school and lead a group of student volunteers
  • Give a "Ted Talk"-style class presentation on Habitat Greater San Francisco and housing justice
  • Something else entirely. You tell us!

Whatever your talents, we welcome your commitment to Habitat's mission of building and sustaining affordable homeownership opportunities for local families in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties.

"Being a part of Habitat is my way of taking a stance against the outrageous housing prices in the Bay Area. It's my way of acting, rather than accepting!" - Nadya
