About A Little Bit of Hope

A Little Bit of HOPE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on building awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) opportunities in alignment with academia and corporate partnership to create equitable wealth opportunities for people of color and women.

ALBH will focus initially on cultivating relationships with socioeconomically distressed communities and families, particularly middle and high school students, while also aligning college bound students with opportunities for scholarships and internships and illuminating STEAM careers and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Focus Areas

We're laser focused on being change agents in four key areas of opportunity to address racial inequalities and minimize the opportunity divide through the advancement of STEAM careers.

We partner within the community to empower people in underserved regions and enable growth through career and entrepreneurial advancement.

STEAM Education

We provide a platform and curriculum to assist in the growth of students, professionals, and parents who have a desire to excel in STEAM career fields.

Financial & Wealth

We provide an ecosystem and educational curriculum to help minorities and people of color learn to manage finances at an early age and build generational wealth.

Health & Empowerment

We create healthy lifestyle and fitness awareness through fun, motivational  content that helps minorities and women to address life’s challenges and health issues.
