HOPE Taskforce

Helping Other People Everywhere

Upper Columbia Academy is involved in a significant community service program called HOPE Task Force.  This program was started in 1993 before the momentum began in the public school curriculum.  The purpose of this program is to educate our students regarding the diverse needs within a community and to teach them, through example, and experience, to creatively and routinely be involved in meeting those needs.

Four school days are set aside each school year for the HOPE Task Force program.  On these days, faculty and students are involved in numerous community service projects, each involving approximately four hours of service.
