As the 2022-23 school year comes to a close, the 14 Hands4Hope on-campus clubs completed the final part of the year-long service-learning process: Demonstration. During this phase, students recap everything they learned from the previous phases and share project results and lessons learned.
We are so proud of all the 310 youth who participated in these clubs and the 61 youth leaders who led their peers in this school year. We encourage you to join us in congratulating all the participants by viewing their demonstration projects.
