Program Name
H.O.P.E. Service Immersion Program
History
Students who participate in the Stonehill H.O.P.E. program form community with one another during the five months leading up to their trip. They learn about the culture, history and issues of social injustice in the communities they are destined to visit and serve.

The trips themselves are truly immersive experiences, challenging students to engage the four tenets of H.O.P.E.:

Honoring our neighbor
Organizing for justice
Practicing peace
Encountering God

Prior to departure, while on site and upon their return to campus, students are encouraged to reflect on their experiences and to integrate the pursuit of social justice into their day-to-day lives, whether their experience was domestic & local, or international.
