Applications for the 2014 HOPE Youth Corps (HYC) are now available. Over the past 20 years HYC has provided opportunities for teens and college students to serve the poor and needy while build lasting spiritual convictions, memories and friendships.

We have included a bit of information about HYC. Please see the HOPE website for more information. www.hopeww.org
