This celebration and build brings together staff and volunteers of Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity (GAHH) and is made possible with support from State Farm and the efforts of YUGA -the official Youth United Chapter of Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity (www.youthunitedabq.com).

About the Youth Advisory Board
The Youth Advisory Board is comprised of 30 students, ages 17-20, from across the United States and Canada who serve a two-year term. Their directive is to implement a $5 million-a-year signature service-learning initiative to address issues important to youth and communities. The Board is completely autonomous and youth-driven, and funds projects focused on issues selected by the board that impact youth. It consists of a diverse group of full-time students at high schools and universities. Each member commits about 15 hours a month to the Board and participates in three face-to-face meetings per calendar year. The Board will fund the 40 grants awarded through the Cause An Effect program with a portion of its $5 million funding in 2012.
