“10” Club

This association was created to honor those individuals who, when asked on a scale of 1 – 10, “Do you believe all children and youth are capable of success, No Exceptions?” are able to circle “10” = Strongly Believe. Our research is clear, kids have a greater chance of succeeding in life when they are surrounded by adults who strongly believe in them – adults who are “10’s.”

Additionally, the “10” club membership dues raise funds in order to establish a HOPE CHEST Scholarship Fund in support of the annual Youth Development Master’s Institute – 10’s supporting 10’s.

“10” Club members are recognized by:

  • A “10” Club Lapel pin
  • A “10” Club membership certificate
  • Acknowledgement on Kids at Hope website
  • Recognition at the Master’s Institute
  • A 10% discount for all materials, registrations and tuitions.

Membership dues are $10 a year May – April.

…while there are no simple answers regarding how a school develops a culture of academic optimism and high expectations for all students, the Kids at Hope belief system provided remarkable strategies that effectively motivated the entire school community to create optimism and channel behavior toward the accomplishment of high academic goals.
