Community Service in Austin, Texas | Week of Hope

Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They’ll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. As students serve in the name of Jesus, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, with their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose.

Where

Austin is home to a vibrant and growing community. The city’s unofficial slogan, ”Keep Austin Weird,” celebrates the independent spirit and dignity of all people regardless of race, appearance, or economic conditions. 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 an immense impact in the Austin area through serving with adult programs, homeless and veteran ministries, food banks, kids programs, and much more.
