Plan of Hope Development

The ‘Hope’ in this plan stands for Having Only Positive Expectations. This outline will include a list of achievable goals and learning objectives, that will inspire and motivate your child. Through this plan, your child will be able to polish their existing talents, and gain new talents they never knew they could, through hands-on, personalized course content, tutoring, and educational mentoring.

Our Programs

Youth Mentoring

We designed our Youth Mentoring Program to empower students, by supporting them with challenging homework, sharing key tools to boost self-esteem and confidence, while providing the students with a safe, supportive environment to study in after school

Academic Tutoring

We designed our Tutoring Program to cater to students’ individual needs, offering both one-on-one and group-based tutoring, to support every child. We help students fully grasp concepts, understand how to apply key study skills to their subjects, and utilize various methods to ensure students meet their education goals

"This nonprofit organization is AMAZING for so many reasons. There aren't too many places where you can send your children to get help with school work but come home with so much more. You're treated like family and at the end of the day they give you their all to ALL."
