Our Mission:


We help today’s youth establish social, emotional, academic and spiritual balance in their lives. 


Our Mission

Rose 2 Hope, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, is an organization designed to help today’s youth establish social, emotional, academic and spiritual balance in their lives. Mentees will get to network with some of the most successful individuals in their respective fields and obtain opportunities that will enable them to move forward toward their dreams. The founder, Ms.Hillary, believes in empowering each of her “Kids” to reach for the highest star and in teaching them that they, not their circumstances, determine their future, and the effect they will have on the world.  Every mentee is a rose waiting to bloom, even if grown from the cracks of the concrete.

Project Break Free

Project Break Free is an annual week-long youth summit held in New York City during the summer designed to bring together urban, at-risk youth from different areas together and empower them.


Academic success is critical to opening doors to opportunities and a brighter future. It is why Rose 2 Hope offers tutoring in the subjects of math, science and writing, made possible by current mentors and past successful mentees wanting to give back.


Rose 2 Hope aims to pair mentees, based on their field of interest, with mentors, of similar background, who are successful in their respective fields and help them obtain opportunities that will enable them to move forward toward their dreams.

Educational Resources

Rose 2 Hope believes every mentee should have access to higher education. Rose 2 Hope helps mentees find scholarship opportunities and provides support in application writing and review.


“I endeavor to change the world through my students and each person I encounter, one at a time.”
