Message – The Hope Assembly Initiative offers programs that every student can connect with. We speak to the world changing potential in students and offer them hope in their journey. We gain credibility with students by encouraging their dreams and sharing our personal stories. We then address harmful behaviors and trends present in youth culture today. We want to do more than reduce the outward display of negative behavior, however. Our goal is to shine light on the feelings and experiences provoking these behaviors and remind students that there is always hope for change. We show students how it is possible to live a life that is bigger than themselves–the life of a world changer.
Methods – We are very lucky to have a diverse team of talented people who are passionate about reaching this generation with a message of hope! Because of this, we are able to convey a timely message through multiple, culturally relevant mediums.
Money – Premium programs at a low price – and even lower, if needed!
