HOPE Crew Stories

Named “HOPE Crew” for “Hands-On Preservation Experience,” the program links preservation projects to the national youth corps movement. It brings the potential for thousands of crew members to work on hundreds of sites, learning preservation craft skills while rehabilitating historic places. In these ways and more, HOPE Crews bolster local economies and help breathe new life into historic places in need of revitalization. Learn more about HOPE Crew through stories from our projects.
