We are happy to report that HOPE worldwide has been selected as one of a few Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) partners to accompany the United States Navy on their Pacific Partnership mission and the only US NGO Partner for Indonesia phase. Captain N. James Chalker, NC, (US Naval Director of Medical Operations and Planning for the US Naval Ship MERCY) and his team of commanders visited HOPE worldwide to discuss the 2018 Pacific Partnership Mission.
We are very excited to announce a brand new program here at HOPE worldwide: HOPE worldwide ADVENTURE CORPS!
The Adventure Corps is an experiential learning and leadership training program. Although there is a service component for two days where participants will mentor Alaskan under-served youths, this is primarily a servant leadership training program where the participants will be challenged spiritually, physically and mentally through an experience unlike no other. As Jesus went into the wilderness in Mark 4, we too will venture into the wild to discover a fuller image of God, his majestic nature and ourselves so that we can better serve the world around us and bring hope to a hurting world.

Come join us in 2018 as we learn to walk "In His Steps!"
We are excited to offer 27 life-changing trips all over the world throughout 2018!
Many people share that their experience on a HOPE Youth Corps is a "once-in-a-lifetime experience" that changes them forever. We are seeking to expand this opportunity for many more youth by offering scholarships for those without the financial means to participate. Our HOPE Youth Corps Scholarship Committee awards funds to help offset some of the cost of registration fees for students who have the heart to serve but face challenging financial circumstances and are unable to cover the full cost.
