Group Week of Hope Austin, Texas

The city’s unofficial slogan, ”Keep Austin Weird,” celebrates the independent spirit and dignity of all people regardless of race, appearance, or economic conditions. And Week of Hope Austin is an amazing opportunity to be “weird in Austin” by serving with Christ’s love.

Known for its amazing live music scene, Austin is set in the beautiful hill country of Texas. Even though Austin has a large tech industry, is the state capitol, and is home to the University of Texas, one in every five families lives in poverty and more than 2,500 people are on the streets each night.

Through our various partner ministries and organizations, your team will have many options for serving youth, elderly, and those in poverty. The city also has the highest cost of living in Texas, creating many opportunities to serve people in need.

Trips for ages 12+ and preteens 10+

Where

Lakeline Mall and Main Event, an entertainment center with a bowling alley, arcade, and laser tag, are also close. Downtown Austin is just 25 minutes away for great restaurants, cafes, and shops.

For those who enjoy getting outdoors, just 25 minutes away is Barton Springs, an awesome spring fed pool! Throughout the city there are also many parks, lakes, and trails where you can swim, kayak, bike and explore.

  • Encourage and honor disabled veterans with a variety of projects at their home.
  • Help set up and distribute food for an organization dedicated to feeding families.
  • Help to clean up the Brushy Creek Lake as well as the local skate park. You may even get to use the lake kayaks for clean up!
  • Brighten up the day for the special needs adults at a day health care center–help with games, exercise, music (bells, piano, sing-alongs), birthday celebrations, themed days, bible discussions, arts and crafts.
  • Serve at the food pantry–inspecting, sorting and shelving foods that are received and enjoy talking with people coming in.
  • Meet and help out at-risk youth. A possible variety of projects could include: reading out loud, playing games, singing, etc.
  • Interact with senior residents on a variety of projects and activities including meal times and games.
