Generation Hope is hosting a fun-filled and elegant evening to celebrate another amazing year of the Scholar Program, including 11 young mothers on their way to a degree, awesome outreach to teen parents in high school, and more Scholars to come in the 2013/2014 academic year! Help us show our pride! To purchase your ticket, table, or sponsorship, please go to: http://bit.ly/U8tdlF

WHAT IS "PEP RALLY UNDER THE STARS"?

The theme for the evening is a mix of college spirit and glitz and glam so pull out your alma mater or favorite college memorabilia and wear it along with your best attire! This could be a college neck tie, t-shirt, or pair of earrings. Be creative!

HELP US CELEBRATE!

We have so much to celebrate! Our first year of the Scholar Program, our first "Prima" class of Scholars, and all of the new things to come in the 2012/2013 academic year! Help us show our pride!

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?

The evening promises to be a blast with great food, good company, dancing, and more! This year's keynote speaker is Academy Award Nominated Actress Taraji P. Henson! Ms. Henson knows firsthand the struggle of earning a degree as a young parent. Come hear her story and why she supports Generation Hope!

WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL YOUR SUPPORT MAKE?

Proceeds from this event will go to Generation Hope's Scholar Program, funding field trips, trainings, the Emergency Scholar Fund, and expenses to keep the program running. The Scholar Program provides direct sponsorships and mentoring support to help teen mothers and teen fathers in the D.C. Metro area earn their college degrees.

Have a great time while supporting the college pursuits of teen parents and the futures of their children!
