Outreach & Social Justice
If you're interested in expressing your faith through outreach and exploring social justice opportunities, you are not alone! There are a hundred ways to get involved, and listed here are only a few. If you don't see what you're looking for, get in touch with Kate Kooyman (firstname.lastname@example.org
) to talk more about what you feel God calling you to get involved with -- chances are, there's something locally that you can get connected with... or maybe even start your own ministry!
Volunteer Services - Interested in a particular kind of service opportunity? Want to volunteer with a group of friends on a certain date? Volunteer Services can help connect you to area ministries and organizations that are looking for Hope students like you!
CASA (Children's After School Achievement) - CASA is a popular after-school tutoring program that meets right on campus. Sign ups happen in the spring and fall.
Hope for the Nations - A long-standing student group on campus dedicated to prayer for Christians around the world. If you're interested in global missions, this is the group for you!
Hope United for Justice - Students interested in social justice of all kinds have come together in this student group to pursue justice and advocacy for issues like the environment, human trafficking, education, human rights, and other global justice concerns. If you have a heart for changing the systems that make and keep people globally in situations of oppression, you'll find like-minded students at this gathering.
Hope Neighbors Community - Hope Neighbors is an intentional community of Hope students living in an urban neighborhood in Holland and focusing on what it means to be neighbors to each other and with its community. If you care about justice, community development, and being a part of the "place" where God has called you, you'll love being a Hope Neighbor! Contact HopeNeighbors@hope.edu if you want more info.
