Our story

Be H!P

Humanity in Practice (HIP) promotes how to 'be hip' through purposeful acts of kindness. We work with local agencies to create fun and simple ways to practice humanity. Our flexible volunteer opportunities are perfect for any age because they can be done from anywhere at any time. That's how we practice humanity!
