ORGANIZATION: Generation Hope

  • 33 people are interested

We're looking for individuals who have experience and expertise in various college-level courses to tutor Generation Hope Scholars. Generation Hope Scholars are teen parents who are pursuing a college education to make a better life for themselves and their child. As COVID-19 leaves many of our Scholars balancing both their own virtual learning and their child's virtual learning, we are looking for some volunteer tutors to help alleviate some of the stress experienced by Scholars.

Time Commitment: As needed, typically once a week for about an hour. You will be contacted by our Tutoring Coordinator when your help is needed. Please note that an online background check is required for this opportunity.

To sign up as a tutor, please complete the volunteer form below and upload your resume where indicated!

About Generation Hope

Location:

415 Michigan Ave NE, Suite 250, WASHINGTON, DC 20017, US

Mission Statement

Generation Hope is a nonprofit organization that matches sponsors with teen parents who are attending college and are in need of financial and emotional support. Based on the belief that education is vital to success, its purposes are to give young parents and their children a support system as they pursue academic excellence, to provide a direct-support experience for sponsoring organizations and individuals, and to create a new generation of ambitious and successful families.

Description

This one-of-a-kind program, started by a former teen mother who wanted to see more teen parents beat the odds, matches teen parents (Scholars) who are attending college in the Washington, D.C. metro area with individuals, organizations, and local businesses (Sponsors) to participate in a mentoring relationship that includes emotional and financial support. This is a multi-year commitment, lasting until the Scholar receives their college degree.

We believe education is the best promise for teen parents to achieve stable and successful futures and consistent financial and emotional support increases the likelihood that they will graduate. When teen mothers and fathers earn college degrees, their children are less likely to live in poverty, and our communities are strengthened.
