Echoes of Hope received a grant in support of their Leaders of Tomorrow program. The program supports former foster youth, at-risk, and low-income youth between the ages of 18-24 with resources they need while pursuing a college education. Echoes of Hope strives to awaken the spirit of hope in the lives of children, youth and young adults in need by alleviating barriers and helping them reach their full potential.
Their first youth to go through the program, Jevon Wlilkes, was offered a position as the program director for Echoes of Hope after graduation from college. He gave back not only to the organization that helped him but also volunteers at other programs that help support educational endeavors. He now works as a family counselor but continues to support Echoes of Hope as a liaison and adviser.
