Coalition for Engaged Education’s C/HOPE Community Program serves youth who have exited the probation camp system. The program supports and guides youth upon their release so they can forge a long-term, stable and productive path.
C/HOPE partners with culturally-sensitive organizations in communities that represent their youth.
"I have been a part of the Coalition since I was 15 years old and incarcerated. While I was incarcerated, the program helped make my time both productive and entertaining. C/HOPE has provided me and my mother with unconditional support for 3 years and they even employed me through their internship program. This program has been truly wonderful."
"We envision a day when our youth are not defined by adjectives such as “at-risk”, “high-risk” “underprivileged”, “homeless”, “poverty stricken” and “throw away kids” among others. At the Coalition we support youth to overcome systemic barriers as they achieve their goals. We meet youths where they are at, both physically and emotionally, tailoring our practice to each youths’ individual needs."
