Resolution: Where Will You Go From Here?

The Habitat AmeriCorps Alumni Association (HAAA) mobilizes Habitat AmeriCorps alumni as hearts, hands, and voices to strengthen Habitat for Humanity’s societal impact and inspire action to end substandard housing. AmeriCorps Alumni go on to careers of service with Habitat for Humanity, state and local government agencies, non-profits of all types, educational institutions, and even in the arts. After their term of service is over, we send them on to do great things and they continue to get things done for America.

“Having the AmeriCorps and Habitat experience on my resume opened tons of opportunities for me that I don’t think I would have otherwise had. It opened my eyes to the needs of so many and it changed me forever. I am committed to a career in service now, really a lifetime of service to others.”
