Generation Hope is the only community-based nonprofit organization solely focused on college completion for teen parents in the D.C. area and is a rarity across the United States. In fact, Generation Hope's founder was named a 2014 CNN Hero and the organization has been recognized by The Washington Post, "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams," and "The Steve Harvey Show" for its innovative work.
Generation Hope exists to empower ambitious, family-focused teen parents striving to complete their college education by pairing them with caring, committed, adult mentors and an emotional and financial support system, thereby driving a two-generation solution to poverty.
