Teen HYPE is an organization serving youth with heart, integrity, and commitment. As a founding Board member, I am proud of how the organization has grown while remaining faithful to its mission, and the youth we serve. The core staff, and new recruits alike take pride in their work, and strive every day to make the lives of Detroit youth better; that is worthy of celebration and praise. Whether attending the annual play, hanging out with parents and kids at the Thanksgiving dinner, serving refreshments, or attending a Board meeting, I am honored to be a part of the Teen HYPE family.

Prior to joining the board, my daughter begrudingly auditioned for Teen HYPE in 2009. A poet since age 5 she was shy about her talent and preferred to allow others to shine. However, Ms. Red, Mrs. Hudson and Ms. Joy were patient with her, and nurtured and encouraged her to share her gift with her peers and the community. The staff's positive influence has helped shape her leadership skills and opened the door to new friendships and connections with teens throughout the state and country that she otherwise may not have experienced without Teen HYPE. Today she speaks passionately about Teen HYPE, the staff and the organization's bright future. Teen HYPE is restoring hope to Metropolitan Detroit one teen at a time so come see what the HYPE is all about.
