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. 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.  Once accepted, Generation Hope provides each Scholar with two supports that we believe increase the likelihood that they will obtain their college degree; up to $2,400 per year in tuition assistance and one-on-one mentoring. This support stays with Scholars until they earn their two or four-year degree.

RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is s an intense 3-day, 2 night leadership training high school students who have shown a potential for rendering important service to their schools and communities. More than 150 high school students attended RYLA last year. Participants are nominated by local Rotary clubs and for these high school students, this recognition offers the opportunity to build self-confidence, gain exposure to a variety of issues and people, meet active community leaders, and learn valuable information and career skills. We will be fundraising to send at least one high school kid to this event in February.
