Reviews for Seed of Hope Foundation
I've had the opportunity to volunteer and participate in a couple of events. This organization was organized, staff and board members were friendly and relational. Their yearly conference for young girls and now women was AWESOME. It allowed the girls to challenge themselves and it allowed adult women to re-evaluate their purpose and they encouraged connecting with other like minded women. If I had a daughter she would definitely participate in the Seed of Hope.
Seed of Hope is just that a Seed of Hope. It brings joy to see young girls lives transformed by this organization. It shows that they have taken time to REALLY learn what these girls need and once they do they implement programs that are impactful. I have seen girls deal with and address anger, self-esteem, leadership along with watching them graduate high school and attend college. Their lives are so impacted by the seed that was sown that now their Seed of Hope has reaped a harvest of successful young ladies prepared for womanhood. I love the Seed of Hope and their mission of love to young girls. I count it a pleasure to volunteer with them or donate how I can.
This organization is doing amazing things to reach not only young ladies but young men as well. I have had the pleasure of attending a few of their events and seeing firsthand how they engage with youth and develop their leadership potential. Seed of Hope is making great strides in the community by helping one young person at a time.
This was a phenomenal event for the young and mature. If you have a young girl in your life, I strongly recommend this conference. If you are a female leader I strongly recommend this conference as well as there was something inspirational for everyone involved. Support this organization, volunteer, and give. I highly recommend this event!
What an incredible organization! Seed of Hope truly believes in sowing seeds into the youth they encounter, they are definitely game changers! Gwendolyn Young and Jacqueline Barnes leads this nonprofit with unbelievable passion and expertise for youth! Gwendolyn Young speaks from her own personal experiences and her many skills are what has created and sustained this successful organization. I can truly say that Seed of Hope organization stands behind their vision and mission in regards to teaching youth how to become amazing Leaders. I was able to witness these two amazing ladies in action sharing their knowledge and expertise to a classroom full of youth at Heartland Alliance. They spoke with so much passion, love and knowledge that they were able to capture the youth's attention and provide them with HOPE. The youth were so intrigue with being told that they are somebody, that someone believes in them and that they can become a positive leader, that after the presentation was over some of the youth wanted to learn more. So several youth stayed afterwards to talk to Mrs. Young and Mrs. Barnes to get further insight into becoming a better "ME".
This is an amazing organization ! Many vision & mission statements look "pretty" on paper while lacking in demonstration & provision of services... not so with Seed of Hope Foundation....
Im not sure who was blessed the most, me or my 12 year old granddaughter, from the authentic care & compassion demonstrated by Seed of Hope. I was so impressed I have decided to lend my services & partner with the mission & vision of this life changing organization!!

Seed of Hope has a passion for helping young people experience success at the highest level! We need more non-profits like them who truly care about at-promise youth and willing to do the work to make huge changes.
Thank you Seed of Hope for being a part of the change in our world!
Seed of Hope Foundation is an organization that is focus on enpowering and enriching the lives of the young ladies that they engage in. The instructors and the staff are truly dedicated to the cause and the purpose of helping to change the mindset of the ladies to help them to know they are of greatness. This organization is well deserved of the recognition.
SOH is really doing some positive and encouraging things with the young people that they are mentoring and who attend their events. I had an opportunity to attend an event and I was amazed of the talents that they young ladies displayed especially after hearing many of their stories. I wish they could have this type of organization in every community.

Seed of Hope is an AMAZING organization that has helped me in both professional and personal ways. I have aqcuired tools from them that usually take an adult YEARS to learn. Seed of Hope is very dear to my heart, and it is a pleasure, honor, and blessing to be a volunteer for them also. Being a volunteer has also added to my communication skills and non-profit/event planning skills. It has also given me an insider look to the way a non-profit organization works and runs......Seed of Hope is truly a dream come true to ANY individual....proffessionals, youg adults, teens, etc. because of its wide range of targeted programs designed to build on the needs of the individual.

I feel that this program is wonderful and is helpful and useful. This program helps me with school, home, and life problems. This girls group helped me learn and grow from my mistakes and choices. This group helped me with making friends and cutting some off, trusting and believing and controlling my feelings and emotions.
I really liked this girls mentoring program and hope they continue to help girls because this is a good start.
