This study examines the different ways that Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) campus chapters engage their officers and volunteers, collaborate with external publics and fundraise to help eliminate substandard housing. The information for the study was collected through a survey sent to 271 campus chapters and interviews with five campus chapters, as well as reviewing current literature on employee engagement, trends in youth volunteering and corporate social responsibility. The study aligns strengths of certain campus chapters with areas of improvement of others that campus chapters can utilize to help improve their effectiveness.
