Generations of Hope
We all can remember the challenges of growing up. The experiences that a young person has during their preteen years fundamentally impact who they become as a young adult. We believe that personal, focused, mentoring relationships are the key to helping young people reach their full potential. This is why the Generations of Hope (GOH) program builds relationships between middle school students in York City and student mentors from York College. These mentors facilitate engaging experiences through an interactive curriculum approach to allow Generations of Hope students to explore new opportunities, engage with the community, and develop life skills.
Generations of Hope aims to increase the number of York City students who experience success in their K-12 education and who pursue post-secondary education opportunities. Generations of Hope also aims to inspire both middle school students and college students to serve as leaders, mentors, and changemakers in their communities. Research has shown that effective mentoring relationships during this critical period in a young person’s life can have a monumental impact on their future success. To ensure that York has a strong future, Generations of Hope is committed to building relationships that matter.
