Community Service in Nashville, Tennessee| 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

It’s likely that your team will listen to music on the drive to Nashville, but once you enter the city limits, turn off your devices and take in the richness, creativity, and soul of Nashville—the country music capital of the world. This city is home to Music Row, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Ryman Auditorium, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. But even if you have team members who aren’t country music fans, Nashville is still buzzing with life thanks to the Nashville Zoo, Nashville Shores Waterpark, the Music City Trolley Hop, and the Music City Marketplace. Although there’s a lot to see and do in Nashville, the community also has an intertwined diversity of highs and lows. Walk down one street past million-dollar homes, and around the next corner you’ll see low-income housing. About 13 percent of the population lives below the poverty line. People try to live off minimum wage in a city where you need two or three times that wage to survive. Homelessness statistics are 20 to 30 percent higher than the national average. Week of Hope participants will help greatly in the Nashville area through serving with inner city students, aging adults, and children with disabilities.
