The Centers for Youth & Families Champions of Hope Program – Accepting Nominations

Nominate an 11th or 12th grade young man for The Centers for Youth & Families Champions of Hope!

Your nominee will have a unique opportunity to join with his up to 30 of his peers to serve as representatives of The Centers for Youth & Families, develop leadership skills, earn community service hours and be recognized for his commitment to others as a Champion of Hope!

Champions of Hope are young men in 11th and 12th grades who complete a leadership, service and philanthropy program hosted by Centers for Youth and Families that takes place from September to April. As a Champion of Hope, your son will learn leadership and advocacy skills, volunteer at The Centers and with other community organizations and raise funds individually and in groups to address timely social issues – including homelessness, depression, suicide prevention, and human trafficking. Families are asked to give or raise a $1,500 gift for the mission of changing lives of children and youth served at The Centers. The Centers provides assistance with fundraising activities, including a personal fundraising web site and group fundraising activities.

Your son will make a difference in the lives of children and families through various organizations in our community, join together with peers from surrounding schools for group service projects and be recognized at The Centers for Youth and Families annual spring gala, The Evolve Gala, at the Statehouse Convention Center.
