Community Service in Minneapolis, Minnesota | 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

Minneapolis is beautiful booming city, with a rich history of accepting foreign refugees. In fact, it’s currently one of the fastest growing cities in the Midwest. This growth has led to a shortage of affordable housing and shelters for those in need. The city faces a rising homeless population, families that can barely pay the bills each month, refugees looking for resources to get back on their feet, homeowners facing fines for not maintaining homes, and children at risk of falling into bad situations because of too much free-time on their hands during the summer. When you join the Minneapolis Week of Hope team, you’ll have the chance to minister to the homeless and hungry living on the streets, the senior citizens in need of help with home care, the children who need help learning to read, the members of a small inner-city church who want to make a difference in their community but doesn’t have the resources to do it on their own. We hope to see you in Minneapolis this summer!
