The 2020 Lone Star Summer Series
The Lone Star Summer Series is a learning and gathering opportunity for Habitat for Humanity affiliates to gain knowledge, community, and experience over two months. The series includes 8-weeks of courses with certification, like the Certificate in Grant Writing, and one-time webinars in all Habitat’s job areas, including construction, finance, homebuyer services, fundraising, and community engagement. Your Habitat affiliate can sign up for the whole series or purchase individual classes. To make things fun, your Habitat affiliate can participate as a team and the teams that complete the most courses will get recognized when we conclude in August.
The course catalog contains over 40 offerings, covering these Habitat related topics: Construction, Finance, Fundraising, Home-buyer Services and Volunteers. In addition to these topics, there are 3 Learning Intensives in Grant Writing, Construction Project Management and Exceptional Boards.
This Summer Series concludes on August 13th at noon with our Keynote Speaker, Jeremi Suri. Registration is free, but you are required to sign up ahead of time.
