At Hands4Hope, our mission is to inspire and empower youth in leadership and service. We do this by giving youth a platform to make their voices heard on issues affecting our community and provide them the opportunity to take action in their own way.
After-school project committees incorporate our mission by providing opportunities for students, from 8th grade to 12th grade, to Explore, Act and Lead Service-Learning Projects.
Ryan Christopher Hersh Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Ryan Christopher Hersh Memorial Scholarship Fund is a fund in memory of Ryan Christopher Hersh, who passed away at the age of 18. Ryan was an active participant in Hands4Hope for multiple years. To honor Ryan and his love of serving, his grandparents created this fund so that others may explore needs in their community and have the opportunity to take action in their own way, as Ryan did through Hands4Hope.
