HOPE worldwide believes strongly in the spirit of volunteerism and seeks to provide a variety of opportunities for individuals to engage in acts of service. Utilizing a network of HOPE worldwide Chapters in North America, we mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers every year to address local community needs and respond quickly to disasters. Our service areas include youth mentoring, disaster response, fire safety and prevention and homeless outreach. Volunteer leadership councils also provide opportunities for youth and Chapter representatives to gain nonprofit management experience and contribute to the future plans of HOPE worldwide . By combining the skills, expertise and compassion demonstrated daily by our volunteers, we are uniting in service to lift up the underprivileged and encourage the needy.
