Des Moines, IA, January 10, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- There are close to 60,000 youth in the Des Moines area and they all struggle with daunting issues, academic struggles, and self-worth in some fashion. The kids are not knocking down the doors to get help mostly because they do not know whom to trust and they simply cannot afford the professional assistance it requires.
Hope2Offer Student Services, a vision of a former teacher called to help students and their families, recently formed a non-profit 501(c)3 ministry that gives practical and spiritual help to students in the area of tutoring, counseling, child and teen obesity services, summer camps and free community events.
H20 is led by a board of caring Christian professionals who desire to make an earthly and eternal impact on youth and their families. H2O services are offered to all students at a minimal cost. Students who participate in the program(s) commit their time and resources covering a percentage of the service cost in which they enroll. H2O then covers the additional cost and expenses from monies donated by its sponsors. H2O believes this partnership helps students commit to change and claim ownership in the process toward reaching their goals.
Students find Hope2Offer through the youth friendly website, word of mouth and The Orange Planet, which provides teens a large recreational arena and a safe social environment to meet friends and is home to H20.
Hope2Offer has begun to attract professional counselors, reading specialists, math and science tutors, medical professionals, trainers and volunteers who all want to give back to local and central Iowa teens.
You can get involved as a volunteer or give to support Des Moines local youth by visiting their website, www.hope2offer.com. There’s Always Hope.
