Minors and the law

Labor laws govern minors work activities. If you are under 18 years of age, you cannot be at a construction site unless your Parent or Guardian signs a waiver (Parents and Teachers, you will be interested in this information). Print and fill out a Youth Waiver and Consent Form.

Do you attend Burroughs High School?

Burroughs High School has a Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter. Members of this group help us with fund raising and with tasks appropriate to their age group. Here is how they have helped and what they are currently doing. The chapter ‘goes dark’ during the summer months. Watch for Sign-up Dates at School
