Community Service in Wayne County, New York | 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

Located in a lush region with green rolling hills, Wayne County, New York is a remarkable community with a vibrant, established relationship with Week of Hope. The historic Erie Canal passes through the nearby village of Newark, allowing boaters to travel along a scenic water route from Albany to Buffalo. The community incorporates a portion of the Canal Way Trail System, giving ample recreation for hikers, bikers, or individuals who just wish to enjoy wildlife and quiet trails. This rural community doesn’t attract the huge organizations, but boasts small town volunteerism. The small town feel is unique to Week of Hope as the entire community rallies around us for the summer to provide meals, support, and friendly hellos wherever you go. Our long-term host is a partnership of two churches—and between the two churches is a park that’s home to a weekly farmers market. Teams will experience the benefits of the established relationships in the community, including meals prepared by groups such as Rotary. Teams are both anticipated for their arrival and remembered when they leave. If you come to Wayne County, you will leave knowing that you have been a blessing to specific people.
