Recent Projects

Are our children being pushed into PRISON?  The pipeline to prison:  The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world and its prisons and jails are overwhelmingly filled with African Americans and Latinos.  The paths to prison for young African American and Latino men are many, but the starting points are often the school and foster care systems.  Students of color face harsher discipline and are more likely to be pushed out of school than whites.  Black and Latino students are twice as likely to NOT GRADUATE high school as whites.  68% of all males in state and federal prison do not have a high school diploma.  Help us change that.Become a mentor! Tampa Bay Academy of Hope provides mentoring programs and tutoring services to all.

We have a simple mission:  Keep our youth in school and out of the prison pipeline and help them become productive and successful citizens!
