Project Description

Generation Hope reduces poverty one family at a time by providing mentoring, services, and financial resources to help DC area teen parents become college graduates and help their children enter kindergarten at higher levels of school readiness. Nationwide, less than 2 percent of teen mothers earn a college degree before age 30. In contrast, Generation Hope Scholars graduate from college at twice the rate of low-income students nationwide and nearly eight times the rate of single mothers.
