The Power of Hope is a charitable non-profit organization that unleashes the positive potential of youth through arts-centered, multicultural and intergenerational learning programs that value self-awareness, leadership, environmental stewardship, community and social change.

With a youth-adult ratio of 2:1, Power of Hope offers quality engagement and mentorship. For over fifteen years, POH has consistently transformed teens’ lives – across cultural, socioeconomic, and generational lines. Each summer, we see youth have the time of their lives, and send them back into their families and communities with a more compassionate worldview, a better self-image, stronger leadership skills, and a host of new friends.
