Join the Core Support Circle  

 Let's make magic all year round 

Monthly donations provide vital funds that will support the Power of Hope to continue life changing youth programming throughout the year. 

What makes Power of Hope different?





In our increasingly fractured society, we’re amplifying our mandate of Learning from Difference. It’s a simple formula: cultivate empathy and deep listening across cultural and socioeconomic divides in an atmosphere of imagination, learning, and fun. Our Creative Facilitation model excels at building bridges of trust, understanding, and love.  

This is crucial work. Disconnection is at the core of the big issues that plague youth today: suicide, anxiety, addictions, and self-harm. Power of Hope empowers youth by unleashing creativity, boosting self-image, reconnecting with nature, and sparking community leadership. 

Does our work align with your values? 

We’d LOVE to have you join the Core Support Circle. There is power in connecting our values to where we put our money. We want to build a team of supporters whose hearts are connected to this work.

"Attending or supporting PoH is something that you would never regret. This community has been a space for me to connect to myself, people who hold different perspectives, explore my creative side, be vulnerable, and feel the love that comes from connections to people and the land. I love PoH with all of my heart and look forward to it every summer. It has brought so much power and light to my life and helped me find the tools to step into my power and create change in the world."
