I am excited to serve on the Teen HYPE Board because I've seen how special our young people are. When I first joined the board, I noticed immediately that the youth in our organization are the future leaders of Detroit and cities across the nation need to be successful in the 21st century. Their character, resilience, and creativity embody what Detroit is all about.
I am hyped to serve on the Teen Hype board of directors because it is an amazing opportunity for a youth such as myself. I cherish that I can help make the board and the program more cohesive and make Teen Hype better with my contributions.
I serve on the Board of Directors for Teen Hype because of the amazing way in which Teen Hype touched both of my children. I started as a parent of two peer educators in the program. Both of my children have graduated and I will always find a way to continue to work with this awesome and amazing organization. I know firsthand how amazing this organization is and I am honored to do anything I can to advance our mission.
I am hyped to serve on the Teen HYPE board because Teen HYPE is an organization that has figured out how to meet all young people where they are to serve their needs, despite their backgrounds and circumstances. Being youth-led, it is evident in the success of the organization that Teen HYPE prepares young people to be the best they can be by building their personal voices. I’m proud to play a role in supporting the organization and those it serves.
I am HYPEd to provide inner city kids an opportunity to tap into their creative skills to provide awareness of pertinent issues to their peers. I have an opportunity to assist in providing an outlet for the youth while providing assistance, awareness, and education to Metro Detroit residents.
I'm HYPED to serve as a board member for Teen H.Y.P.E. because I know the difference a caring adult can make in a teen's life trajectory. I could have easily gone a different route, but people invested in and supported me and my dreams. That's why it's important to me to do the same for young people in Detroit.
Every time I hear a new success story about one of the kids in the program it cultivates my feelings on how important our mission is. Often, the good news publicized about Detroit involves the latest real estate development or the newest restaurant - - Our city has a wonderful community of young people striving every day to not only make their lives better but the community around them. It truly is a privilege to serve on the board of directors.
Serving on the Teen HYPE Board provides me the opportunity to contribute my time, talents and treasures to an agency where they are multiplied, and my wish for Detroit area teens comes to life. Given the right mixture of love, support, structure, fun and education our teens believe in themselves, and THRIVE!
I am excited to serve on Teen HYPE Board because it will allow me to be an advocate for the youth that are making a difference in their communities, I want to be a voice for those who are not able or not comfortable enough to voice their own opinions.
Over the years, I have worked with many non-profits that are providing services to the youth of Detroit but Teen Hype really stands out with its accomplishments. It is one of a few organizations that provides support from high school to college graduation. Even with a limited budget, the organization has been successful in creating future leaders. Imagine what Teen Hype could do with sufficient funding! I am happy to have the opportunity and honor to serve this remarkable organization
When you see children who are confidently becoming the future leaders of our city, and parts unknown, it is immensely inspiring. There is also the realization that there are no guarantees that kids will have these opportunities to grow, and achieve their full capability, without the passion, hard work, and dedicated mission of Teen HYPE. That dedication is why I become involved with this amazing organization.
