NextGen: Young Leaders Build

Calling all young leaders in Lake County! Join us for this three-week Build event that empowers you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families and the fabric of our community.

Date: July 16 – August 3

Location: Waukegan, IL

About the Event:

Habitat for Humanity Lake County is thrilled to launch NextGen Build, a new initiative that invites young people from all corners of Lake County to step up, take the lead, and shape the future of affordable housing in our community. Through this transformative three-week Build event, we aim to harness the energy, passion, and innovation of young leaders to support families on their journeys to homeownership.

Empowering Young Leaders:

The NextGen Build isn’t just about building homes; it’s about building leaders. As a participant, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your leadership skills, creativity, and commitment to equity by:

  • Building Homes: Roll up your sleeves and work side by side with fellow young leaders to construct homes from the ground up. Your hands-on involvement will not only provide tangible support to families in need but also demonstrate your dedication to creating a more equitable community.
  • Raising Awareness: Leverage the power of your social networks to raise awareness about the importance of affordable housing and the impact of Habitat for Humanity Lake County. Share your experiences, insights, and progress online, sparking conversations and inspiring others to get involved.
  • Advocating for Change: Become a vocal advocate for affordable housing policies and initiatives within Lake County and beyond. By lending your voice to the cause, you’ll help drive systemic change and ensure that everyone has access to safe, affordable housing.


Join the Movement

This isn’t just another Build event—it’s a movement. It’s an opportunity for young leaders to step into your power, ignite change, and leave a lasting legacy of impact and inclusion in our community.
