  • Why a registration fee?
    The annual registration fee allows youth to participate in the Hands4Hope Community Engagement programming, which is a comprehensive service learning educational experience, guided by skilled staff members.

  • Is there a Registration Fee to participate in Hands4Hope school clubs?
    There is no Registration Fee to participate in school clubs. However, Hands4Hope relies on financial contributions from participating families. A contribution is not required to participate, and families that choose to contribute may do so at any amount. However, a suggested contribution of $5.00 will help sustain the program at its current level. Conversely, low enrollment and/or insufficient funding could result in club cancellations. Hands4Hope appreciates any contributions made to the program. Contributions will be collected during school club meetings.
