Habitat Young Professionals
We Network. We Build. We Advocate.
Austin Habitat for Humanity Young Professionals is a group of like-minded professionals who make an impact on housing affordability in Austin by networking, advocating and building affordable homes in the community.
Why We Do It
Housing prices in Austin continue to rise, making it harder for low-income families to buy or rent. Austin Habitat offers them the opportunity to buy an affordable home, helping keep Austin the diverse and vibrant city that we love.
HYP helps its members develop and improve their leadership skills through a variety of social, service, and educational opportunities. It’s also a great opportunity for those interested in being on a nonprofit board and advancing their careers. Membership includes:
- Contributing a tangible impact on the Austin and Central Texas communities
- Opportunity to join other HYP members for our volunteer construction days
- Discounted or free admission to HYP events
- Leadership opportunities on the board or committee
- Access to our LinkedIn networking group
- Access to a solid network of socially responsible professionals
- A HYP T-shirt of your choice
