H.O.P.E (Help Our Planet's Environment)

HOPE stands for Help Our Planet's Environment and is New Albany High School's student-founded environmental club. Through HOPE, students impact their community and the world around them by participating in environmentally friendly activities. The goals of HOPE are to create an awareness of current environmental issues, volunteer for local organizations that promote clean environmental practices, raise money for causes, and brainstorm projects that the club, as a group, can carry out. At the same time, HOPE fosters life-long skills of collaboration, leadership and responsibility as well as creates a relaxed, social environment, allowing students to follow their passion for the environment while having fun and meeting peers with similar interests.
