Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge: Making a Difference

Who Are We?

International Service Devils at Arizona State University on the Polytechnic Campus is a student-led, service organization. This Spring Break, we are asking for your help to become a part of something greater. Since the club was founded in 2012, we have traveled each year to a new and exciting location to help and volunteer in communities across the world from Guatemala to Vietnam. In light of recent events and devastation caused by coastal hurricanes, we have decided to look closer to home this year and spend our spring break volunteering alongside Habitat for Humanity in Florida.

 

Why Habitat for Humanity?

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat's vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We believe our club mission and goals closely parallel that of Habitat. We wanted our Spring Break to be more than just a vacation. As a service orientated organization, we hope to become inspired during our trip - to feel a renewed sense of social responsibility. Working alongside the homeowners and families, our members will experience an incredible opportunity. To help make a sustainable change, one day at a time.

 

The Collegiate Challenge

This Spring Break in March of 2020, International Service Devil's will be a part of the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge. This alternative school break volunteer opportunity has been provided to high school and college students since the program began in the late '80s. As the program celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, our members are eager to join the more than 250,000 others who have already committed to building safe, affordable homes across the United States. While the program continues to grow and change, one thing that remains constant is Collegiate Challenge’s commitment to build partnerships with people who share a common goal, to gain greater awareness of the need for decent and affordable housing, and to deepen the commitment to social action.  

 

Our Mission

Through this unique one-week volunteer program, our club members will be travelling across the country to Marianna, Florida. The Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity is a rural affiliate in the Florida Panhandle. Unfortunately, this scenic area was severely impacted by Hurricane Michael in 2018. We will be helping the community affected. Collegiate Challenge offers an education all its own. At our group's build site, we will be learning about substandard living conditions and how affordable housing builds strength, stability and self-reliance for homeowners. This will allow our students to see not just a house being built or repaired, but the people behind it  macro issues on a micro scale. These are life lessons we hope to carry far into the future. All the fun along the way bonding as a group will just be extra credit!

 

 

Help us prepare for an incredible experience that our members will never forget. We hope to return to Arizona feeling inspired and empowered to continue creating a lasting impact in our home community. We encourage you to follow our journey on social media through Facebook and Instagram @asu.isd
