WGB Referral Partner, Generation Hope featured on Good Morning America

We're excited to share that Good Morning America featured Generation Hope in a segment on Monday, September 16th. With this coverage we have the opportunity to amplify the persistence and drive of teen parents on a national level.

Generation Hope's mission is to surround motivated teen parents and their children with the mentors, emotional support, and financial resources that they need to thrive in college and kindergarten, thereby driving a two-generation solution to poverty — we hope that this segment inspires others to get involved with our work and to find ways to support teen parents in their own communities!
