Helping Our People Evolve (HOPE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for the youth in low income neighborhoods. Since its inception, HOPE has been working with children through several different programs such as after our after school initiative “HOPE Through After School”. In continuance with our ongoing efforts, we will be launching nine additional free virtual programs for the children in the community. Each program will be taught by professional mentors in their respective subject.
Donations to HOPE will be used to provide instruction, materials and training for both virtual and in person classes. Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the school year 2021-2022 to support all our programs.
At the commencement of the new HOPE THROUGH initiative, we will be primarily focused on HOPE THROUGH Program with our initial budget starting at $20,000. As we build our capitol, the remaining programs will be rolled out gradually throughout the year.
Hope through recognizes the need to create opportunities for the youth to learn how to express themselves and build connections in the community. Community Leaders often engage with the issues of the time to promote positive social change. Showcasing the success of community leaders in art should serve as an inspiration to our youth.
HOPE THROUGH was created because at HOPE, we recognize that our youth deserves more opportunities. Opportunities to develop life skills such as critical consciousness, critical thinking and how to foster empathy, to name a few. We believe we can teach our children to cultivate and facilitate their skills , while adopting the knowledge and expertise of our community leaders which to help them build connections to future generations and expand on our culture.
At HOPE, we believe that the inspiration from direct representation of our residents makes all the difference in continuing to reflect the aesthetics of our communities; a powerful and instrumental part of the change we seek.
