Hola. Glad you are here.
Parenting does not come with a manual and right when you are feeling comfortable with one stage, another one comes. We want to support YOU as your navigate your teenagers success in high school and beyond.
To achieve this, we are here to get your student connected to a strong community at their school, assist their growth as a leader, and provide them the guidance and resources they need to apply for college, receive scholarships, and reach their ultimate career destination.
WHO WE ARE
HoPe is a nonprofit organization with one of a kind interactive extra-curricular programming that provides a powerful community for high school students to feel connected, lead, grow and serve.
We have been helping students get into their dream college and obtain scholarships by giving them the platform to elevate their leadership, have educational resources and give back to their community.
WHAT WE DO
We build communities for students to succeed through our HoPe Leadership Chapters.
Our local chapters are available for students belonging to their respective high school to join.
We provide students with leadership development training, educational coaching and resources, plus community service opportunities.
WHY SHOULD YOUR TEENAGER JOIN?
Students thrive when they are in a community that supports them, inspires them and challenges them. We provide a support system for students to know that they are not alone. We also provide role models for students to visualize themselves saying, "if they did it, I can also do it."
Studies show that there is an important relationship between extra-curricular activities and academic achievement, and all show that students who participate in them have higher grades, more positive attitudes toward school, and higher academic aspirations.
Plus, your student will be able to have fun in a positive environment and create long lasting friendships.
HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS
Your student becomes a member and they get connected to their local and/or national chapter.
Your student builds community at their local school by actively participating in all chapter activities. These include: monthly meetings, community service projects, fundraisers, outings, etc.
Your student receives additional opportunities to grow and get connected through our organizational events, such as our Leadership Retreats and Annual Conference.
