We're excited to announce Generation Hope in our quest to share meaningful volunteer opportunities with you. Did you know that only 2% of teen moms earn their college degree by the age of 30? Generation Hope is moving the needle on that statistic by pairing college-going teen parents with caring mentors (as well as providing scholarships & wraparound services).
Generation Hope will have 25 young parents (mostly moms but a handful of dads!) in our Scholar program for the first time in NOLA this upcoming year, and we can only take as many Scholars as we have mentors! https://youtu.be/knkE5zP-P6U
Would you like to help a whole family thrive by supporting a teen parent pursuing their college degree? Our mentoring opportunity is a unique one - mentors provide guidance, coaching, encouragement, all the typical mentor components, BUT - they also directly fund their mentee's scholarship, too, meaning they've got even more skin in the game when it comes to helping their Scholar succeed!
