Generation Hope is the only community-based nonprofit organization in the DMV region focused on college completion and early childhood success for two populations that are dismissed regarding their potential and dreams for the future, and we are 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. Generation Hope provides each Scholar with three supports that we believe increase the likelihood that they will obtain their college degree; up to $2,400 per year in tuition assistance, one-on-one mentoring, and case management. Additionally, Scholars receive an increased network of support from the extended family that the program provides to them and to their young children. This support stays with Scholars until they earn their two or four-year degree.
The Pancake Battle is our fall fundraising event for Generation Hope, and will be taking place on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at the Mess Hall DC venue. This event will have local celebrities such as Dr. DeRionne Pollard, President of Montgomery College, Dr. Charlene Dukes, President of Prince George's Community College, Dr. Jonathan Brice, Associate Superintendent for Student and Family Support and Engagement for Montgomery County Public Schools, Dr. Stewart Edelstein, Executive Director of the Universities at Shady Grove, and D.C. Council member Brandon T. Todd compete to see who can cook the best pancakes -- and come together to celebrate higher education and our vital work and mission.
We're looking for volunteers to assist in a variety of capacities, such as helping with registration, assisting with the silent auction, welcoming guests as they arrive, set up, and etc. Your volunteer role is crucial to making the event a success -- we couldn't do it without you! If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Michelle at Michelle@supportgenerationhope.org.
