Generation Hope in the News

Welcome to the Generation Hope Media Room!  If we truly care about reducing poverty, we have to care about the futures of teen parents and their children.  Media coverage can play a huge role in this effort by providing information on how increasing the educational attainment of teen parents can have positive, rippling effects on their children and our entire community. If you are a member of the press, we would be happy to talk with you!

All media requests can be directed to Nicole Lynn Lewis, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, at 202-656-8704 or
