Childcare Volunteers Needed For July 27th For Workshops For Teen Parents In College!

Generation Hope

July 27, 2019, 9:15 a.m. - July 27, 2019, 5 p.m.

Generation Hope is the only community-based nonprofit organization in the DMV region focused on college completion and early childhood success for two populations that are dismissed regarding their potential and dreams for the future, and we are a rarity across the United States. Founded in 2010, Generation Hope selects teen mothers and teen fathers who have displayed academic achievement and a desire to go to college to become Scholars in the Generation Hope Scholar Program. Teen parents are often dismissed by school officials and others when it comes to their potential to pursue higher education. Generation Hope presents college-readiness workshops in the community throughout the year to identify and recruit promising students to our program. Once accepted, Generation Hope provides each Scholar with three supports that we believe increase the likelihood that they will obtain their college degree; up to $2,400 per year in tuition assistance, one-on-one mentoring, and case management. Additionally, Scholars receive an increased network of support from the extended family that the program provides to them and to their young children. This support stays with Scholars until they earn their two or four-year degree. We will be holding our Summer Bridge Program for our Scholars on Saturday, July 27th and Saturday, August 3rd and and we need volunteers to help with the kiddos so our Scholars can focus on getting the tools they need to succeed in college! Please consider volunteering part of your day (3 hrs) or more!To sign up: https://generation_hope.formstack.com/forms/volunteersignup_2019summerevents
