2016 HOPE worldwide Singles Corps Sites

  • Papua New Guinea HWW Singles Corps:

Dates: July 16 to 31
Price: $ 1,210 for the Port Moresby trip plus international flight
$ 1,770 for the Gumine trip plus international flight (your internal flight is included in the program fee of $ 1,770)
Final payment deadline: May 1, 2016

Two programs available (same dates):

– Port Moresby (A HOPE Youth Corps open to singles)
– Gumine (18 and over, so mostly for singles)

The Port Moresby group will serve in underprivileged communities in Port Moresby itself, the capital of Papua New Guinea. The participants will serve at a clinic, doing maintenance work. They will also teach literacy.

The Gumine group will spend the first three days in Port Moresby with the first group, then they will take a plane ride into the mountains (hence the higher cost) to reach out to isolated communities of our brothers and sisters.  They will stay with disciples in the village itself, doing maintenance work, teaching English, and working with a water project. They will also hike one whole day to go and visit an even more remote village where they will also serve our brothers and sisters and their community.

This trip will appeal to those with a real sense of adventure and the stamina to match! The trip of a lifetime!

  • Alaska 2 HWW Singles Corps:

Dates:  Sept. 11 to 18 
Price: $970 plus flights
(Final payment deadline August 1, 2016)

The Gateway to the Arctic Camp near Talkeetna, Alaska, is a new agricultural youth camp whose mission is to develop the character of Alaska’s youth through education and engagement in sustainable agriculture. Participants will grow in their knowledge of agriculture, sustainable and responsible living, empowering service, and effective leadership, all while experiencing an unforgettable summer camp. Participants will focus on camp construction and maintenance, during which participants will help with various building projects on the camp, such as trail building and maintenance, cabin/outbuilding maintenance and improvement, and more. Power tools will be used with proper training and supervision. There are also plans for the implementation of an agricultural-themed camp where the HSC will teach campers about agriculture and get them involved in the process!

This program will focus on the harvest. All of the hard work throughout the summer will have paid off! It will be time to harvest our crops and donate them to those in need. As well, winter comes quickly, so it will be time to make sure camp is properly prepared for the winter season. 

If you like the outdoors and are a bit of a “free spirit”, you will love this HSC! Think “Bear Grylls meets Jesus”!

  • Johannesburg, South Africa HWW Singles Corps (SITE NOW FULL FOR FEMALE APPLICANTS – ONLY ACCEPTING MALE APPLICANTS AT THIS TIME):

We are inviting Singles and Professionals to visit and work in informal settlements in South Africa from October 29 to November 7, 2016 to help orphans and little children with Early Childhood Development. We will work with children and caregivers in Zandspruit and Diepsloot in basic education, nutrition, exercise, health, character building, and child protection. Then we will host a Regional Singles Conference for Singles and Professionals in Southern Africa on November 5-6, 2016.  We will also have up close and personal wildlife excursions with lions and elephants. We will help the participants to understand and implement Early Childhood development programs in informal settlements. It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about the needs and importance of little children in all of our lives. “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3.

  • El Salvador HWW Singles Corps:

A group of 20 singles will volunteer at a local school, build classrooms, and renovate premises. The participants will also help rebuild the homes of members of the church.  This trip takes place right after the Community Service Brigades (November 3-6), offering the possibility of doing both programs back-to-back.

  • Sri Lanka HWW Singles Corps: 

Dates: Dec. 20 to Jan. 1
Price: $ 1,040 plus flight (final payment deadline Nov 1, 2016)

Come and spend Christmas serving in Sri Lanka with other singles from around the world! HOPE worldwide  Sri Lanka has been running a school for underprivileged children for many years. On this service trip, you will teach the children of the school (we need teachers, including music teachers!), reach out to the community, and help clean the slum area where the children live (so lots of opportunity for manual labor!) In the community, you will deliver messages on health and hygiene, good nutrition, and life skills. We are also appealing to medical professionals, who will conduct much needed medical checkups. So, nurses, doctors, dentists! We need you!

  • Alaska 1 HWW Singles Corps  (POSTPONED TO APRIL 2017):

NOTE: This Singles Corps has been postponed until next year (April 2017) in order to allow as many people as possible to raise funds and request time off of work to attend this amazing program. Applications will continue to be accepted for this site. Additionally, the September 2016 Alaska HOPEww Singles Corps (Alaska 2) is still on as scheduled, please see more details above regarding the September trip.

The Gateway to the Arctic Camp near Talkeetna, Alaska, is a new agricultural youth camp whose mission is to develop the character of Alaska’s youth through education and engagement in sustainable agriculture. Participants will grow in their knowledge of agriculture, sustainable and responsible living, empowering service, and effective leadership, all while experiencing an unforgettable summer camp. HSC participants will spend two weeks at the camp. One week will focus on camp construction and maintenance, during which participants will help with various building projects on the camp, such as trail building and maintenance, cabin/outbuilding maintenance and improvement, and more. Power tools will be used with proper training and supervision. During the other week, participants will assist in the implementation of an agricultural-themed camp. The HSC will teach campers about agriculture and get them involved in the process!

Late April is birch tree tapping season in Alaska! Participants will work with campers to tap birch trees at the camp and make birch syrup! If you like the outdoors and are a bit of a “free spirit”, you will love this HSC! Think “Bear Grylls meets Jesus”!

“Calling All Brothers!”

JeremyWe asked Jeremy Newton-John,  a member of the HOPE worldwide Singles Corps Committee from Australia, to share why he believes it is important for brothers to participate in the HOPE worldwide Singles Corps.  Here’s his compelling response entitled “Epitaph”: 

 One day, people are going to stand over my grave. What will they remember?  A nice guy? Will that be my epitaph: ‘Here lies a nice guy?’ The thought makes me shudder. I really, really don’t want my greatest struggle to have been with my boss over a pay rise. I do not want the labours of my life summed up in a house valuation. Right now, I don’t have kids, but if ever I do, I want my life to have been something my kids would choose to read about.

I cannot be content to overcome obstacles by pressing a button on the remote. I cannot be content to see this planet from Google Earth. And I cannot be content to see other people suffer when it’s in my power to do something about it. I don’t want to die sick – but if I must, then let it be by malaria contracted while helping orphans in an African swamp – not by heart disease from too many hamburgers.

And all this is worldly. What of eternity? Will I be able to stand tall in the Halls of Glory alongside David, Moses, Ezekiel, Barnabas, and James knowing I had run a good race? Will I be able to look Paul of Tarsus in the face and say, ‘Brother, I, too, gave it my best shot’? God did not give us a Spirit of timidity. Surely that means we have been given the Spirit of Adventure, also… I don’t know about you, but I want more than just my name written in the Book of Life.

So, over to you, brothers of the Heavenly Calling: What will be your epitaph?
