SPEAKING LIFE, CHANGING LIVES
Stone of Hope Youth was born out of the idea that we as adults can set our youth on a path that can change their lives forever. We are a registered non-profit organization responding to the growing need for disadvantaged youth in Salt Lake City to succeed.
Approximately 11% of households in the State of Utah live below the poverty line, and a further 62% of students in the Salt Lake City Schools live in poverty. For students struggling with social and economic setbacks, they are faced with a challenging hurdle to access higher education and live out their potential.
Our purpose is to mentor students who are struggling with social and economic setbacks and provide resources to assist them in completing their education. In addition, teaching the skills to become motivated, disciplined, creative, compassionate, and faith-filled leaders in their communities.
"With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope."
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
