January 2013 marked the beginning of the second term of the HOPE worldwide National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC). Comprised of high school and college students, the NYAC is committed to providing vision, counsel and creative solutions as service leaders to engage their peers in service to the poor through HOPE worldwide programs.
The 2013 NYAC has 17 members from across the United States representing all regions of the country. During the first NYAC term, members promoted HOPE Youth Corps and Community Service Fellows, established Regional Youth Action Groups, implemented the first ever Signature Youth Service Day, and hosted the HOPE Youth Corps Celebration at the World Discipleship Summit in San Antonio, TX.
Members of the 2013 NYAC will build on the foundation that was laid by the inaugural Council and hope to engage even more youth in service to the poor through HOPE worldwide programs. To view bios of each of the 2013 NYAC members, click here.
National Chapter Advisory Board Continues Service to HOPE worldwide Chapters across North America
The HOPE worldwide National Chapter Advisory Board (NCAB) was created to equip HOPE worldwide to better serve its volunteers and meet the needs of the nearly 100 official Chapters. Made of 13 local Chapter directors representing all regions of the United States, the NCAB’s purpose is to counsel Headquarters on Chapter activity, events, fund raisers, best practices, and development.
The NCAB has recently published a HOPE worldwide Chapter Director Manual and online training videos. These tools have been developed to provide best practice programming, volunteer management support, financial operations management, spiritual perspective, fundraising ideas and more to Chapter Directors and volunteers. The goals of NCAB in 2013 include a continued commitment to identifying and implementing ideas that will strengthen and sustain the North America Chapters service to the poor and needy.
