We HEART Our Volunteers!

Child Care Volunteer Jonquilyn reads to Scholars' children during the November Scholar/Sponsor In-service TrainingGiving of your time and talents is no easy task – no matter how worthy the cause.  When I step back and look at the many individuals who volunteer with Generation Hope, I realize that we rely so heavily on their diverse contributions in order to carry out our mission each day.  Whether you are one of our dedicated board members, who have been with us from the very start (when we were just a business plan on paper!), or a Snack Crew volunteer who drops off a box of delicious snacks for our Scholars’ children to enjoy during a training.  Maybe you’re one of the seven Sponsors who mentors our Scholars and keeps them on track to a college degree.   We also have our committee members who meet on a regular basis to ensure that we are financially sound, executing an awesome gala, and spreading the word about our work in the community.  No matter how you volunteer with us, each of you makes this machine work.  We would not be able to help young parents achieve their goal of a college degree if it weren’t for our volunteers.

In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we’ve been posting photos of our volunteers in action on our Facebook page.   We want to send a huge message of appreciation to each and every one of you.   You are special members of the Generation Hope family!

Tonight we’ll host our Volunteer Appreciation Happy Hour at Busboys and Poets.  Photos coming soon!
