Habitat for Humanity's Youth Movement Fights for Affordable Housing
Since 2014, Britton Devier has served as director of credit recovery and advancement at Smiths Station High School. Britton Devier spends his free time supporting causes such as Habitat for Humanity.
A global nongovernmental organization established in 1976, Habitat for Humanity operates with a mission of ensuring that everyone has a place to live. In carrying out this mission, it works with people from all age groups to build affordable houses for those in need.
Habitat for Humanity enjoys a strong support base among the youth sector. On April 2016, over 300,000 participants across the Asia Pacific region joined Habitat for Humanity's annual Habitat Young Leaders Build, the organization's largest youth movement. The movement spans 16 countries and aims to tackle issues that continue to deter poverty housing. Activities include construction and other advocacy activities that aim to inspire people to approach these issues.
