Together we are making a difference!

It is truly amazing to see the transformation that takes place in the students during the junior high and high school years as they learn and put into practice public speaking and leadership skill in the safe environment of Chapter. When they turn 14, and complete the 1st and 2nd Phase of YSG training, Student Leaders lead Warm-ups, Opening Activities, Devotions and Lessons for the Young Communicators for Christ (YCC) classes.
The ICC Local, National and International training events are key to instilling vision and passion into the student's life. It is like igniting a torch. The students will bring that light back to the RI HOPE Chapter with great enthusiasm and share it with their peers and community. Your generous gift is having an impact on the students, their families and their communities.
Donations help to empower next generation leaders to influence today's culture. Weekly RI HOPE chapter meetings and challenging Young Speakers Guild (YSG) curriculum encourage all of our students to reach out to their community with the truth of the gospel. RI HOPE has taken presentations to veterans, senior citizens in nursing homes and assisted living, peers in churches, and children in schools and libraries.
