Hope Conference

The Hope Conference

The Hope Conference provides Generation Hope Scholars with the best tools and information for personal, academic, and professional success. In addition, the conference also includes a track for expecting or parenting students in the greater Washington D.C. Metro area who are contemplating college. This track encourages them to attend college and provides them with the information that they need to make applying/attending college as easy as possible. The 2018 Hope Conference will be on June 2, 2018 at the Washington Hilton. 

Going to this conference and having this experience was a chance of a lifetime. I went over all of the information I received, and I’m really excited about pursuing college. I look forward to coming to all the other events that have been planned.
