HoPe LEADERSHIP CHAPTER
The HoPe Leadership Chapter Expansion Process is NOW OPEN! We believe that every school in the country should have the ability to experience a community where they can connect, belong, excel and thrive! If you are ready for this life changing experience, check out the steps below! Please note that applying for a new chapter does not guarantee its establishment. We encourage all individuals who are interested to work diligently to fulfill each step with excellence. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. We are here to support you along the way!
The process includes:
DOES YOUR SCHOOL QUALIFY?
THE HOPE LEADERSHIP CHAPTERS ARE ONLY FOR HIGH SCHOOLS. TO QUALIFY, YOUR SCHOOLS MUST:
1.BE AN ACCREDITED HIGH SCHOOL
2.HAVE A MINIMUM OF 10% HISPANIC HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT POPULATION*
WHILE THE PROGRAM IS OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS REGARDLESS OF RACE/ETHNICITY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO US THAT YOUR SCHOOL HAS A SOLID BASED OF HISPANIC STUDENTS WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM THE RESOURCES PROVIDED.
RECRUIT 4 POTENTIAL STUDENT LEADERS
TO BE A HOPE STUDENT LEADER IS AN EXCITING JOURNEY. RECRUIT STUDENTS WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY AND WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO BRING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS. WE WILL PROVIDE THE TRAINING, THE RESOURCES, AND THE COACHING! MAKE SURE THE STUDENTS HAVE THE PASSION!
WE OFTEN REFER TO THESE STUDENTS AS LEGACY LEADERS AS THEY ARE CREATING A LEGACY IN THEIR SCHOOLS!
RECRUIT 2-3 SCHOOL FACULTY AS POTENTIAL CHAPTER ADVISOR
WE LOVE OUR HOPE CHAPTER ADVISORS! THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CHAPTERS ARE THOSE WHOSE ADVISORS SERVE AS PARTNERS WITH THE STUDENTS IN THIS JOURNEY.
WE RECOMMEND YOU FIND 2-3 TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND/OR ADMINISTRATORS WHO CAN SUPPORT YOUR CHAPTER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. THE MORE PASSIONATE AN ADVISOR, THE MORE SUCCESS WE WILL SEE IN THE CHAPTER!
