Generation Hope is an organization dedicated to helping teen parents become college graduates. One way we support them is by providing free tutoring services. Right now, we have a pressing need for a criminal justice tutor for a student at UMD. This would be a fun, short-term commitment of just 3-4 hour long meetings.   

Besides being a good resume builder, you would be helping this teen parent achieve a degree and provide for her young family. If you might be interested, please send me an email at: megan@supportgenerationhope.org. Please check out our website to learn more about our organization: www.supportgenerationhope.org
