Fewer than 2% of teen mothers who have a baby before age 18 earn a college degree before age 30. At Generation Hope, we’re changing these statistics one family & one system at a time - and YOU can help.

Become a Generation Hope New Orleans Mentor today! You’ll be matched one-on-one with one of our Scholars, all tenacious teen parents pursuing their college degrees, and invest in their success.

  • Throughout their college career, you will meet with your Scholar monthly and build a caring, supportive relationship.
  • Mentors contribute either $1,200/year ($100 monthly) for a community college student or $2,400/year ($200 monthly) for a student at a four-year college, which goes straight to your Scholar’s tuition.

We welcome mentors from all walks of life and all backgrounds-all you need is a big heart and a desire to help a young parent in our community succeed. Get involved at https://generationhope.org/mentor or reach out to our team at NOLAScholar@generationhope.org.
