ORGANIZATION: Generation Hope

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Generation is a non-profit scholarship organization in the greater DC area. We work with teen parents who are getting their first degree in colleges. As part of our program, our Scholars often attend workshops, networking events, and program dinners. In order to make these events as accessible as possible, we provide free childcare, so that our Scholars can focus on making connections, learning, and being as present as possible. During July, August, and September, we have a number of volunteering opportunities during weekdays, weekday evenings, and weekends! Events take place in a variety of locations over the DMV. Your support means the world to us and to our Scholars!

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.
