Build with us in El Salvador! Spring Break Build

Yes!  Champaign County Habitat for Humanity is going back to build in El Salvador. We would love for you to join us in this Global Village Trip with Habitat for Humanity of El Salvador.

Date:  March 17th-25th – Spring Break Build!

Are you looking to travel the world with a purpose and make a positive difference in the lives of others and yourself?  To experience the culture of a country dramatically different from your own while helping families in need of a simple, decent and affordable home? If so, then please join our Global Village adventure to El Salvador where you will roll-up your sleeves with your fellow like-minded team members working alongside the family and local community members to inspire and provide a “hand up” not a “hand out” for low-income families in need. All it takes is a positive, open-minded, flexible attitude, a willingness to learn, a sense of humor and the desire have fun while working hard as part of a team.  There are no prior skills or construction experience required.

The reward for your dedication and commitment will be:

  • A tremendous feeling of accomplishment as part of a team building a house in partnership with a family that will forever change their lives
  • A deep understanding of the El Salvadorain culture that you will learn and experience first-hand as a participant
  • Enjoying the camaraderie, team spirit and fun of a like-minded but diverse team focused on a common and meaningful goal
  • An opportunity to learn more about yourself and fellow team members while understanding public service and humanity in a global context

For more information on joining Habitat on this Global Village Trip, please email Kim at outreach@cuhabitat.org
