H.Y.P.E. to Empower, Inc. is seeking to appoint fifteen new members to ensure we have the capacity and skills to implement our goals in the next phase of our evolution.

This innovative and fast-growing organization is in the works of transforming the lives of children, youth, young adults, families, and communities living with HIV. H.Y.P.E.’s targeted population are HIV positive children, youth, and young adults between the ages of 5-30 years of age, and their families affected by HIV.

Our comprehensive and relevant services at H.Y.P.E. involve community services, HIV-education, academic education, counseling, medical, social, and professional support, and self and social empowerment.

In addition to our direct services for HIV positive individuals and communities, we also aim to provide our skills and expertise to persons, groups, organizations and businesses who wish to utilize the HYPE model in targeting areas where they wish to make a difference. And we pride ourselves in having the ability to stand out as a leader in this area.

Last year was a momentous year for our organization, we attained our tax-exempt status!

As previously stated, we are currently assembling a new board of directors to help lead our organization into a successful future. With that in mind, we are extending an invitation to the community in hopes you join our executive team of directors. Our new Board will consist of business professionals, community members, and individuals who reflect and provide skills, knowledge, and networks in which we aim to serve. With you on board, you can help provide us with sound business direction, bringing fresh ideas and solid leadership to the organization.

We pride ourselves on supporting each other as a team and believe that we offer an opportunity for our members to learn and grow with the organization.
