Generation Hope is a non-profit organization that helps DC-area teen moms and dads become college graduates. We provide them with tuition assistance, one-on-one mentoring, and crisis support until they graduate.
My mom passed away and I do everything for my mom in memory of her. I dedicate this graduation to her on Mother's Day.
When a young parent earns their college degree, the likelihood of that child to go to college goes up and they will earn $1 million more over the course of their lifetime. It is a tremendous return of investment. And all of these issues that we care about: homelessness, child welfare, poverty - this really makes a difference and it changes lives.
