GDM Habitat offers opportunities for schools, faith based youth groups, youth-focused community groups, individuals, and families to get involved with Habitat.

Collegiate Challenge

Collegiate Challenge engages students during Spring Break for week long mission trips. Participants will have a chance to learn skills, meet new people, and make a difference right here in Des Moines.

Youth Groups

We have lots of volunteer opportunities for youth groups. Whether it’s a high school group, groups completing silver cord hours, or a church youth group, shoot us an email and we’ll get something scheduled.


Volunteers ages 16 and 17 must have a guardian sign their waiver of liability and be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them. Youth groups volunteering must have a ratio of one adult to every four youths.
