We first need you to attend an informational session where we’ll walk you through our programs and how HOPE works.

HOPE connected me with an internship as a gardener. From there, I worked my way all the way up to Assistant Manager. I can see for myself the impact that my work has on New York City and the world at large.


And, we continue to support you long after you begin your career.

When you’re HOPE, you’re HOPE for Life.
