KIPP DC was the host site for 101 Women of Hope, a one-day, public service initiative, bringing over 101 women together to support over 1,000+ DC youth. As a follow up to last year, the event gave students an opportunity to explore various careers, and volunteer participants were able to assist in various classes and sponsor individual students. Marsha Ambrosius surprised students, and she opened up her heart and soul and sang a song.
The specific goals for the program were to:
1. Encourage and motivate KIPP DC students by introducing them to positive role models and career exploration opportunities.
2. Encourage professional women and celebrities to mentor students, many of who are considered “at-risk”, in their community.
3. Increase public awareness of the 101 of Hope program, to lead to greater community, government and corporate support.
