"Our Rites of Passage Self Discovery Program is dedicated to empowering and improving the lives of Black Youth through a 22 week (20 Instructional Weeks/2 Week Journey to Ghana). During the intensive 22 Week Program, students take a self discovery journey in which they learn about self, where they come from and what they are capable of achieving, leadership development, financial literacy, drug/alcohol awareness and community service. Our goal is to create a safe space for Black Youth to grow, flourish and transition into adulthood."
It takes a village to raise a child and Gifts of Hope would like to be that village.

My family and I would like to thank Gifts Of Hope for making it possible for my children to have a birthday parties and more. Thank you so much, Samona.
The GOH Team worked diligently to assure that the children at my afterschool program received their Easter baskets. I truly thank you for the gift of hope that you and your team gifted to my children.
