Hope First, Inc. Helping Others Pursue Excellence through Enrichment, Enhancement, Empowerment and Excellence. Our mission is to bring hope to today’s youth population. It is our belief that every child has the potential to be the best, to be an over achiever.  Your child has the ability to learn, grow and believe the impossible is possible.

Through workshops, seminars and specialized programming we offer a motivational program that inspires young people to discover their inner self and deliver what God has placed inside of them.  Given the opportunity to learn every child can succeed and become a leader in today’s society.

At Hope First we believe in turning dreams into destiny.  A child’s destiny is determined by his/her upbringing, structure and environment.  When a child is being loved, developed and groomed by responsible teachers and leaders they will produce.  As stated in the African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child…” and Hope First is one of those villages where children are being mentored and given opportunities to express themselves.

The Standard of Excellence Youth Conference is making a difference in the lives of young people guiding them in their faith and empowering them to live for Jesus! As we embark upon the next decade of “helping others pursue excellence” we invite you to register your children, youth and young adults for this amazing conference and life changing experience.
