Hope Worldwide

HOPE WORLDWIDE

HOPE worldwide was founded in 1991 in response to the call of the Scriptures to serve the poor, sick and suffering throughout the world. The organization began with just three small programs dedicated to bringing hope to vulnerable communities. Today, HOPE worldwide serves more than 1.5 million people annually on every inhabited continent.

HOPE Youth Corps (HYC) was established in 1994 by HOPE worldwide and is a faith-based, service-learning program designed for high school and college students. Working with HOPE worldwide programs in developing countries and within the United States, HYC participants serve lower-income communities through various outreach efforts and community maintenance programs.

In recent years, volunteers at the U.S. site of Philadelphia have worked with underserved students living in urban areas, taking them out of inner-city surroundings to mentor them at Camp Hope for Kids.  The volunteer mentors facilitate lessons on character development, conflict resolution, and environmental stewardship. These mentoring projects include team-building activities and aim to help the students understand their own potential to succeed, overcome fears and doubts, and make a difference in their own communities.
