Job Description

About Generation Hope:
Generation Hope’s mission is to surround motivated teen parents and their children with the mentors, emotional support, and financial resources that they need to thrive in college and kindergarten, thereby driving a two-generation solution to poverty. To date we have provided more than $600,000 in tuition assistance, supported almost 200 teen parents in college, and celebrated 76 degrees earned through our program.

Our Scholar Program includes tuition assistance, one-on-one mentoring, case management, career readiness programming, and mental health support to help teen parents earn college degrees and achieve economic mobility. Our Next Generation Academy includes literacy, social-emotional, cognitive, and parenting interventions through a comprehensive home-visiting model to prepare the children of our Scholars for kindergarten.

In an effort to address the systems that impact our Scholars, and student parents across the country, we regularly work with think tanks, policy makers, higher education leaders, and other practitioners, and look forward to expanding that work. Media coverage has included CNN, Good Morning America, NBC Nightly News, Washington Business Journal, The Steve Harvey Show, NBC4 Washington, WJLA, The Washington Post, Chronicle for Higher Education, New America, and more.
