Since HOPE was founded in 1984, our core values have yielded a warm and respectful environment and outstanding results for impoverished New Yorkers.
These values include:
Collaboration: We work together to solve problems and provide the highest quality services to our students and graduates. In our classrooms we create a learning environment to teach the skills needed in the modern workforce.
Dignity: We cultivate an environment of respect in all aspects of our work. We acknowledge backgrounds and barriers
Empowerment: We believe in second chances and that our students and graduates have the power to transform their lives. We provide the tools and resources, and our clients work hard to achieve their goals.
Excellence: We use ongoing rigorous data analysis to drive programmatic enhancements and improvements.
Impact: We have outcomes that are among the strongest in the field--a high return on investments from our supporters.
Integrity: We are open and honest in our work and provide and ask for feedback from our whole community.
Professionalism: We provide a professional working and learning environment to all who walk through our doors. This is our commitment to continuous learning.
