About Hope

Hope grew up outside of Philly, in a suburb of South Jersey. She moved to Vermont for college, where she attended the University of Vermont and received her Bachelors of Arts in Philosophy. She’s been committed to the mission-driven world for several years, and has spent the greater part of the last two years supporting youth mentoring programs in Vermont through her roles with MENTOR Vermont as the Marketing Specialist AmeriCorps VISTA and then as an employee. Hope loves being outdoors, music and dancing, traveling, a good book, and finding new coffee and food spots. She is excited to continue to support students through the power of mentoring as part of the Eye to Eye team!

Why this Work is Important To Me

Too often kids are made to believe that because they learn differently, they are less intelligent, less competent, or less capable. That couldn’t be more false. Each and every young student deserves to realize how awesome they are, and how capable they are. When we help students who have learning and attention differences realize their fullest potential and feel confident in themselves, we are doing the entire world a favor by unlocking their greatness.
