Mission Hope for Kids is an after-school program that provides additional educational, emotional, physical and spiritual support for students in first through 12th grade.

Fridays are geared towards sixth- through 12th-grade students, where resources are provided to help them graduate from high school ready for college, careers and life.

Students recognized as students of the month for the 2018-19 academic year include Ashley Morales, Billy Soler-Aguilar and Ernesto Rodriguez for September; Tyli Howard, Eryaniz Nunez and Angelica Soler-Aguilar for October; Kevin Chavez, Sharon Gonzalez and Bryan Leon-Melchor for November; and Jenny Lydy, Adriana Perry and Athziry Zetina for December.
