Kids at Hope, no exceptions

Kids at Hope
Three Universal Truths & High Five Practices

Three Universal Truths:

  • WE BELIEVE – Children succeed when they are surrounded by adults who believe they can succeed, No Exceptions.
  • WE CONNECT – Children succeed when they have meaningful and sustainable relationships with caring adults.
  • WE TIME TRAVEL – Children succeed when they can articulate their future in four domains rather than one, (which is generally Education & Career): Home & Family, Education & Career, Community & Service, and Hobbies & Recreation.

The five most powerful practices that support the Three Universal Truths 
are called the High Five Practices.

High Five Practices: 

  • BELIEF– Surrounding children with adults who believe all children are capable of success, No Exceptions!
  • PLEDGE – Reciting the Kids at Hope Pledge demonstrates the power of positive self talk.
  • REPORT CARD – Validating and documenting the multiple intelligences of children which leads to developing their full POTENTIAL.
  • PASSPORT TO THE FUTURE – Offering all children the opportunity to “mental time travel” to their future through four domains which leads to HOPE for their future.
  • ACES TRACKING – validating and documenting that all children are indeed connected to one or more caring adults in a meaningful and sustainable manner.
