Our mission is to create, enhance and support social impact for youth that will influence change around the world.
Hearts to Nourish Hope is a place where youth and young adults can further their education and develop life and career skills. Our innovative programming equips teenagers with the tools and support they need to become successful, self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
As teenagers are diverse with various interests, we offer a wide variety of programs designed to speak to the unique interests of any teenager. Our goals for our students are for them to earn their high school diploma or GED and then to go on to college or technical school and/or gain employment, with the ability and support needed to advance.
The working philosophy of Hearts to Nourish Hope is to hold youth accountable for their behavior, to make clear through general program guidelines and in one-on-one counseling sessions the self-destructive consequences of careless or selfish actions and to stress the positive impact of good choices. In addition, Hearts’ programs teach community service and demonstrate to each young person in concrete ways his/her potential for doing good. We believe that long-term change always requires deliberately replacing bad actions with good actions and long-term success requires long term support.
