"Go and Do Likewise!" Announcing the 2017 HYC & HSC Programs

Friday, 30 September 2016 14:57

"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, ‘The one who had mercy on him.’ Jesus told him, ‘Go and do likewise.’” -- Luke 10: 36-37

Come and serve on HOPE Youth Corps, HWW Singles Corps, or on various HWW Volunteer Corps! We have exciting trips planned throughout the year in 2017. We will serve all over the world. This is a preview, so you can start planning.

San DiegoExact dates, prices, and more detailed program descriptions will be posted in the next few weeks. Registration will open on December 1.

We have really worked hard to keep the programs frugal, so most of the trips will cost around $1,100, plus airfare. Some will be slightly cheaper, and some will be slightly more expensive. There will be a limited number of partial scholarships available, so start saving and fundraising now. Ask for a volunteer trip as your Christmas or birthday present! 

U.S. participants have to be 18 and over if travelling internationally, unless accompanied by a chaperone over the age of 21. Non-U.S. citizens can travel anywhere from the age of 15. Children are welcome on our Family Corps if accompanied by a parent.

We also still have spots on the Manila, Philippines HOPE Youth Corps this upcoming December (Dec. 17 - 30, 2016), and on the Sri Lanka Singles Corps (Dec. 20 – Jan. 1). Apply here for Manila HYC (it is open to all, including families): http://www.hopeww.org/hyc and here for the Sri Lanka HSC: http://www.hopeww.org/hsc
