Payments and Fundraising

All HOPE Youth Corps members are required to raise the necessary funds to attend HYC. Prices for each HYC session are posted above and flight costs are not included unless noted otherwise. Program fees are due in full by close of business (5pm ET) on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. Should you fail to submit your payments in full before the final deadline, your spot is subject to cancellation. Volunteer payments submitted after the payment deadline will be subject to a 20% late fee. The 20% penalty is calculated from the total amount owed to HOPE worldwide. There will also be a post-service payment penalty of $100 (flat rate for all payments coming in after HYC ends). We strongly advise making the final payment deadline and communicating to HOPE worldwide any financial complications.
