ANGELS OF HOPE
The Angels of Hope was established in 2008 to mentor and encourage high school juniors to volunteer in the community. The purpose is very simple. The Angels of Hope program promotes an attitude of “Service Above Self” in teenagers. It teaches cancer awareness, encourages volunteer work and inspires girls to be leaders in the community. The program continues to be a great opportunity to mentor a new generation of young women who are as enthusiastic about helping cancer patients as are members of the 20th Century Club.
Invitation letters to potential Angels of Hope candidates will be mailed in mid April. To request an invitation letter email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the candidate’s name, high school and parents’ first and last names and mailing address.
About the program
The program is available for 11th grade female students. Each Angel is responsible for achieving at least 25 hours of volunteer service for presentation at the 20th Century Club’s Hope Ball, held each spring. These hours are earned through required activities at the 20th Century Club’s Lodge, CARTI and other cancer-related events.
The Angels of Hope video, which was shown at the 2019 Hope Ball, gives a glimpse into a few of the activities, service and fellowship the girls shared throughout the year.
