Hope Active is a 501c3, nonprofit organization working to ensure that local at-risk youth  have access to the necessary resources to grow and thrive. Hope Active’s mentorship program is under the leadership of certified mental health coaches, Raymond Steward II & Shonbay Jones. Since 2017, Hope Active  has served over 2,800 students. That number is expected to steadily increase subsequent years.  As a result, Hope Active is continuously honing a tailored strategy, fluid in design, to meet the needs of students participating in our program.  For more information about Hope Active you can visit our website www.hope-active.org or email us at hope@hope-active.org.


Working in collaboration with local educators, juvenile jail facilities staff, and community leaders, Hope Active offers a mentoring program designed to promote positive outcomes through the provision of continuous support from multiple stakeholders.


Trained mentors work with students who are at risk of disengagement or dropping out of school. Each mentor has a personal stake in their student’s success, and they continuously monitor student progress to provide tailored support where needed.


The Hope Active program model promotes active engagement (both at home and in school) between students and mentors.  As a result of this type of “hands-on” approach, teachers have reported improved academic performance among many program participants. Ultimately, we predict increases in the graduation rates of these students and a reduction in recidivism. 

Through relevant programs, services, and events, Hope Active can reach broad segments of populations within Harris and Galveston Counties.

While several programs fall under the scope of Hope Active’s mandate, our Youth Mentorship Program is recognized as a “core” program designed to protect, guide, and support at-risk youth.
