Hope’s In Academy Jr.

Hope's In Academy Jr.

A virtual summer camp that creates fun, age-appropriate conversations for students to learn how to change the world.

Based on our high school program called the Hope’s In Academy, this modified course will help middle school students learn about social impact and meet various nonprofits in the Barrington area. The camp will be hosted by our Executive Director, Courtney McGovern who co-founded HOPE’S IN with her twin sister while they were Juniors in high school. McGovern went to New York University and majored in Nonprofit Organization Management. The camp is also directed by Campbell Henry. Henry is a rising Sophomore at Indiana University and is studying Business Analytics and Marketing. 

Each Tuesday session we will learn about advocacy and during our Thursday sessions, we will go on virtual field trips to local nonprofits. 

Our belief is that service gives people an opportunity for a more purposeful life, a way to discover personal talents and passions, and allows people to act compassionately. We hope you will join us on our journey to become stronger humanitarian leaders!
