Distinctive Hope: Growing Faith

Students on Hope’s spring-break immersion trip to New Orleans work the land at a local schoolyard program that seeks to improve area wellbeing by integrating hands-on organic gardening and seasonal cooking into the curriculum. The trips — 15 this year, around the country and abroad — likewise nurture their 200 Hope participants. Coordinated by Campus Ministries, and emphasizing partnering with and understanding the communities visited, they endeavor to help students cultivate and live their faith as an integral part of who they are.
