In our latest nonprofit Giving Back initiative, the Resilience-Building Leader Program is thrilled to offer RBLP Leadership Certifications to the staff of Operation New Hope, an outstanding organization based in San Bernardino, CA doing exemplary work in educating under-served youth and providing them with life skills and pathways to success.
Founded over 35 years ago by Bill and Anne Degnan – who drew on their educational background in philosophy, sociology, theology, science and medicine to create a unique lifestyle format and support program – Operation New Hope “envisions a community in which all youth, without regard of their living situation, have an equal opportunity to pursue their goals and dreams, and an equal likelihood of achieving them.”
ONH is dedicated to understanding the challenges of out-of-school youth, aiming to increase the success rate of dropouts through Evidence Based trauma-informed curriculum, case management, leadership development and more to develop their own personal roadmaps to achieving success. The organization has made tremendous strides with the Inland Empire’s disadvantaged youth over the last decade, with over 4,000 students completing their Career Pathway Program and 83% entering employment or enrolling in higher education or technical schools.
In its standards- and classroom-based curriculum, ONH serves its students needs by providing a low student-to-teacher ratio learning environment and individualized instruction based on each student’s needs. To compliment the curriculum, ONH teaches essential life skills and encourages a “lifestyle change based in personal responsibility”; activities in the program include outreach efforts such as this past February’s “Love Is A Warm Blanket” initiative, offering hygiene kits, clothing and tents to the homeless community.
