" A Hand Up" Project

The "A Hand Up" Project is a community service project founded by the 2014-2015 NHS chapter meant to provide a helping hand to our adopted orphanage in Morelos, Mexico. We've established a partnership with founders John and Paula Bivens who have devoted their life to provide opportunities for children to live healthy, happy, and fulfilled lives.

Pen Pals

In an effort to offer encouragement to the children at the orphanage, we are starting a "pen pals" program. NHS students wanting to participate in this program will be expected to write to a specific child at least once a month through the school year. 

If you have additional questions, contact Mr. Jones.
