Mentors of Hope

Mentors of Hope is a movement at Chicago Hope Academy to pair students with a mentor whose particular experiences and interests will benefit our students in growing their personal skill set, achieving their goals and gaining better perspective on what lies ahead after high school. Mentors of Hope benefits students by exposing them to adults who care about them, their development and their future. It benefits mentors by providing an opportunity to serve Hope students and to send the elevator back down.
