What’s your story? Be a part of a writing project that will help students around the country learn about innovative ways to save money for college. The Jeune Hope Content Group aspires to help young people make it through college by offering educational programs through the Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative. It is a place where students can come to get their writing edited or even transcribed and cleaned up for a small fee. The students bring their ideas and we help them out. We also offer student assistance through unique programs like the Intellectual Practice Program, Project RED and B. Alley.

Write your own chapter, tell others how you survived college, and have your name featured in the updated version of "Surviving College Financially." We’ve got the print-on-demand contract with Lightning Source. Now all we need is you.

If you feel your story is too personal, you are more than welcome to submit an anonymous account, and there are always other ways that you can help. We need a social media guru to manage a Hoosuite account, and help us get the word out.

If you’re interested in participating in this project, please email us at ask@rebeccaeverlene.org. You can also visit our website at: http://www.rebeccaeverlene.org/survivingcollegefinancially.html

Mission Statement

To provide qualifying students of the Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative’s Intellectual Practice Program with scholarships from the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company Edie Opportunity, and coaching in the areas of math, science, and writing, while also supporting them through the process of creating a potentially patentable innovation, and/or a publishable piece of writing.

To additionally provide financial support and entrepreneurial coaching for Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative Project RED program participants. Through scholarships from the Edie O. program, and participant fundraising efforts, students experiencing a difficult time covering the cost of prom will receive the gift of a dreamy prom evening. Home schooled and ostracized students who haven't had an opportunity to develop friendships that lead to prom dates will also have the ability to request compatible peer escorts via efforts of the program.

To provide hair assistance through the Back Alley Hair Initiative, for those who have fallen on hard times. Just because the economy is bad, it doesn’t mean that ladies and kids have to look the part; gentlemen either if they wear fashionable braids. The Fairy God-Stylist seeks to spare talented individuals some of the shame associated with living on a tight budget. She also understands that appearance can make or break a child’s confidence and self-esteem. Whether a client has an interview, or a mom wants to treat her child to a princess braiding session, we are here to shut those meddling coworkers up and make their jaws drop. Back Alley Hair--affordable Back Alley Chic for the classy and the dapper.

And lastly, to raise awareness about Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and show pet owners how to make canines a functioning part of their households through Tam & Wags. By using basic training techniques, pet owners can overcome any behavioral issues that their pets have and transform their home into a more stable environment.

Description

Through last year’s efforts, we raised awareness about our capabilities as an organization, and expanded our programs to include the Intellectual Practice, Project RED and Edie Opportunity Programs. We also launched Back Alley Hair, and Tam & Wags. Much of the funding that we need to cover the cost of student projects will be generated from the fundraising efforts of the students themselves, in addition to subsidized program fees that will be offered to those who qualify for assistance.

Our mission still hasn’t changed. We aspire to provide qualifying students of the Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative’s Intellectual Practice Program with scholarships from the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company Edie Opportunity, and coaching in the areas of math, science, and writing, while also supporting them through the process of creating a potentially patentable innovation, and/or a publishable piece of writing.

Because of our programs, more than 20 students will be able to attend prom, and receive entrepreneurial training. Another 45 will also have access to extraordinary mentors that will help them develop marketable projects during a yearlong program. And, we also plan to service a large number of children and job seekers through the efforts of Back Alley Hair.

Financial assistance for college is going to become more difficult for people to obtain in the future. Hence, our programs aim to fill in the gap in that regard. They also assist with college preparedness, encourage innovation, foster literacy and promote STEM involvement, nurture entrepreneurial skills, and reinforce artistic abilities.
