Every Spring, Chatham Habitat welcomes groups of college students from across the nation to join us in Chatham County for a week of volunteering. The students stay at Camp Royall in Moncure and spend their time on the construction site where they learn new skills while building relationships and confidence.

College is the perfect time to start a tradition of volunteerism. Again and again, students spend the week working hard for a family, and they leave with great memories and that warm, fuzzy feeling. In addition to the week of work, each University makes a financial contribution to sponsor each student, and that support makes up an important part of funding each home that we build.

We are always interested in hearing from Universities who may want to sponsor an Alternative Break trip to Chatham County. Additionally, we love for local churches, schools, and individuals to get involved. We always want to show a warm welcome to our Collegiate Challenge groups. Contact Mechelle Thompson at (919) 542-0794 x222 to learn more!
