HoPe Leadership Chapters

Since our inception in 2009, the HoPe Leadership Chapters have served as the cornerstone program for Hispanic/Latinx youth in high schools. Our life changing after-school programming provides students with a community in their high school they can belong to while 1) developing their skills as leaders, 2) providing resources to pursue their post-secondary educational goals, 3) giving back to their local communities through service projects, and 4) building life skills to become self-sufficient members of society.

Through the success of our community building model, our HoPe students are finding a sense of belonging, graduating high school on time and pursuing their educational and career goals.

As of the 2021-2022 school year, we have established 71 HoPe Leadership Chapters: 67 in Georgia, 3 in North Carolina, 1 in California.

Population(s) Served

Our HoPe Legacy Leaders Program provides advanced leadership and workforce development training to high school students 14-18 years old. Our HoPe Legacy Leaders, in collaboration with our chapter advisors, work together to lead the programming for all HoPe Leadership Chapters at their respective high schools.

Since our inception in 2009, we have successfully trained and graduated over 1,200 student leaders from our Legacy Leader Program. Our Legacy Leaders have achieved a 100% high school graduation rate and have earned over $20,000,000 in scholarships and grants for post-secondary studies.

Population(s) Served
Ethnic and racial groups
Young adults
Adolescents

The HoPe Educational Program provides all of our students and community members with exceptional educational guidance and resources through a series of avenues:

1) Educational Consultations to all members of the community
2) Educational Worksheets developed monthly to notify high school students of the most important areas to be focusing on by respective grade level (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th)
3) Educational Workshops throughout the school year for all members of the community. Subjects range from applying to college to acquiring scholarships to transitioning into life after high school, and everything in-between.

One of the largest barriers for a student to pursue their post-secondary studies is the lack of knowledge regarding the system. Our HoPe Educational Program works tirelessly to close this knowledge gap to make sure every student who desires a post-secondary education has the tools and resources to achieve their dreams.

Population(s) Served

Throughout the calendar year, we host the following 3 leadership and educational events for all of our students:

1) The HoPe Youth Leadership Summit: This 3-day leadership bootcamp is the cornerstone training for all HoPe Legacy Leaders. This event provides our student leaders with the tools necessary to lead their respective HoPe Leadership Chapters throughout the school year. This event is hosted in July each year.

2 & 3) The HoPe Leadership Retreat / The HoPe Leadership Conference: These 1-day leadership experiences are open to all 3,200 members in the organization. Hosted in November and March respectively, these programs provide students with breakout sessions, leadership keynotes, a college exhibition, and a community of peers who share backgrounds, stories, and dreams. Attendance at this event is a culmination of high school student participants, college volunteers, and community leaders.
