Co-op Program UPDATE:
Please be advised that the Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga is continuing to operate our Social Impact Co-op Program in partnership with our local school boards under modified working conditions and hours. If the status of the program changes due to COVID-19, this status will be updated.
What are Social Impact Schools?
Habitat for Humanity is proud to partner with our local school boards to provide social impact opportunities that build upon youth education. We work with students and educators at all levels to launch new programs and share our social-impact vision with the next generation of community builders.
If your school is located within the City of Mississauga, City of Burlington, Town of Halton Hills, Town of Oakville or Town of Milton, you can join many of our Social Impact School Programs including co-op placements, skilled trades programming, volunteerism and more!
Our Top Programs
Social Impact Co-ops
If you're a student looking for an innovative and fun co-op placement, you've come to the right place. You can learn new skills and a positive community impact. We're a reputable Canadian Charity that strives to empower youth development through work experience.
Meaning of Home
Join our annual writing contest for students in grades 4,5 and 6. As a student, you can submit a poem or essay explaining what home means to you. Together, we'll learn about the importance of safe and affordable housing. Oh, and did we mention that we have some big prizes?
Habitat has partnered with our local carpentry, plumbing, electrical and other skilled trades high-school classes to build tiny homes. We work alongside classrooms and jointly deliver the tiny homes as an affordable housing solution to First Nation reserves and other communities.
Need volunteer hours? We're here to help you get there. We work with thousands of volunteers every year to help them secure their required high-school volunteer hours. We have a diverse set of volunteer opportunities for you to get involved with.
At Habitat for Humy, volunteers are at the core of what we do. They help us run our social enterprise (the ReStore) and support our administration (office), and they share the passion and commitment we have as a Charity to have a social impact.
Did you know that you can volunteer with your friends? You can sign up for the same shifts and participate in fun volunteer opportunities together! Interested? Apply today in less than 30 minutes.
