Hope Nebraska is a five-day mission trip for high school students entering 10-12 grades in the fall of 2019 and May 2019 graduating seniors. We will serve at St. Augustine Indian Mission in Winnebago, NE in partnership with Hope of the Poor.
Each day will consist of prayer, service and cultural experiences in the community, and witness talks to help deepen our understanding of Christ’s vision for social justice.
Youth Cost: $137.00 (Includes food, lodging, t-shirt, and other program materials)
Refund Policy: Refunds for cancellations will not be given after Friday, May 24.
Registration must take place through a parish or school group. Groups must provide an adult chaperone(s) to attend and transport your participants.
A limited number of spots are available; therefore, registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration will close at 5:00 pm on Friday, May 10 or until spots are filled.
Individual Registration: Due to changes in staffing of this event, we are not able to accept individual youth registrations this summer. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to work with your parish or school to organize a group.
If you are in need of financial assistance, please secure a spot for your youth by registering them online and paying a $50.00 deposit. After reserving your spot, please fill out and submit the Scholarship Application linked below.
To be considered for a scholarship, applications are due by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, April 30.
Adult Cost: There is no registration fee for adults.
We simply ask that parish chaperones pay for gas to provide transportation during the week and prepare to spend approximately $20 on taking their car group out to get ice cream following service on one of the days. We suggest that parishes consider reimbursing their chaperones for these expenses.
More information on chaperone guidelines and expectations can be found in the parish leader guide coming soon.
Please check to make sure there is enough room in vehicles for everyone from your parish throughout their Hope NE experience.
One (1) adult to every five (5) youth.
Chaperones must be 21 years or older, have a current Safe Environment certification, and completed Catholic Mutual’s “Be Smart – Drive Safe” Defensive Driving Course.
If the majority of your missionaries are male, we ask you to please provide a male chaperone.
