All too often we have young people in our community struggle to achieve their dreams of furthering their education. Helping Young People Excel values our youth and strives to give them the needed support in achieving their dreams. Providing a laptop for their first year in college is our contribution in showing them that we value their determination and drive and fully support their academic efforts.
"It is my hearts desire to reach as many deserving high school graduates as possible.” “With the help of our area churches, I believe we will succeed." `Ruthie Wilburn
Helping Young People Excel (HYPE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has partnered with churches in the Arlington, Rosemark, Millington and Munford areas as a Community Outreach Scholarship Program. Each church that joins with H.Y.P.E. can have one high school graduate receive a new laptop (one laptop per church).
HYPE also wants to recognize Commissioner Amber Mills for the unwavering support by awarding the state grant that made our mission possible. It is without a doubt that her partnership with HYPE has allowed this program to take root in the community.
HYPE's collaboration with Rev. Cary Vaughn and the HARE committee allows HYPE more visibility and outreach to achieve its mission to bring community awareness about the importance of furthering your education.
On August 23, HYPE awarded it’s 2020 high school graduates with a $500 scholarship to go towards the purchase of their own laptop. As you already know, HYPE’s purpose is to award laptops with Microsoft Office 365 to selected high school graduates. This year the Covid-19 pandemic created a great need for personal laptops for students and people working from home. This need made it basically impossible to purchase the laptops for our 15 students. But our God made it possible that we could still Bless our students.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and make a difference in the lives of the youth in our community.
