every child

needs a strong foundation.

Beaches Habitat is more than housing.

The mission of Beaches Habitat for Humanity’s Education Program is to support academic achievement, to promote completion of high school, and to prepare students for higher education or vocational training. 

After School Program

Beaches Habitat is more than affordable housing. We go beyond home building by providing education opportunities to our homeowners and their children. We provide early learning experiences, support academic achievement, promote completion of high school and help prepare students for college or vocational training.

Scheidel Prep Club/TSIC & Scholarship Programs

Beaches Habitat strives to encourage post-secondary education among our homeowners and their children. To achieve our goals, we partner with the Scheidel Foundation and Take Stock In Children to support academic achievement through preparatory and incentive programs. Homeowners and their children are also eligible for scholarships through the Scheidel Foundation.


Our education program provides a unique opportunity to engage directly with the children of Habitat families and the community. We are always seeking caring, responsible adults willing to invest their time and energy into helping our community. We offer volunteer opportunities to tutor and mentor elementary, middle and high school age students. A background check is required for all volunteers.
