About Generation Hope:
Founded in 2010, Generation Hope provides mentoring, tuition assistance, case management, and other support and resources, and services to help teen parents become college graduates and to help their children become kindergarten rock stars. To date we have provided more than $600,000 in tuition assistance, supported 200 teen parents in college, and celebrated 76 teen parents earning degrees through our program.
Generation Hope currently serves 100 teen parents attending 19 different colleges and 200 expecting or parenting high school students annually through college-readiness workshops. In July 2018, Generation Hope expanded its services in a pilot program called Next Generation Academy, which provides literacy and social-emotional learning as well as case management to the children of Generation Hope Scholars.
Generation Hope’s founder is a CNN Hero and was named a 2017 Minority Business Leader by the Washington Business Journal as well as one of the “Top 40 Under 40” by the Washingtonian in April 2017. Nicole Lynn Lewis was also awarded the national grand prize winner in the 2018 Roslyn S. Jaffe Awards. Additionally, the Catalogue for Philanthropy has twice named the organization “one of the best” nonprofits in the D.C. region.
