Hope Nebraska

Hope Nebraska is a new, five-day mission trip for high school students entering 10-12 grades in the fall of 2018 and May 2018 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: $125 (There is no registration fee for adult chaperones)

Includes food, lodging, t-shirt, and other program materials


Parishes are highly encouraged to organize a group of youth to attend the mission trip together.  All parishes with 3 or more teens 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 11th or until spots are filled.

Scholarships: If you are in need of financial assistance, please secure a spot for your youth by registering them online and paying a $25.00 deposit.  After reserving your spot, please fill out and submit the Scholarship Application.

Scholarship Applications are due by Friday, April 27th.

Individual Registration: Youth may register individually to attend Hope Nebraska. Please contact Beth Carlson at bccarlson@archomaha.org with questions about individual registration.

Refund Policy

Refunds for cancellations will not be given after Friday, May 25th.

Chaperone 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.

Ratio Requirements

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.
