Growing up, I had people in my life who helped me build an interest in STEM through hands-on learning and this exposed me to what is now my career.
I volunteer with Hope Horizon because I want to pass this on and give others the same exposure to engineering that I had.

Volunteers are the backbone of Hope Horizon East Palo Alto as they open doors to hope and opportunity for youth through our highly-relational environment.
Hundreds of volunteers every year provide spiritual and academic support for young people, as well as cover our students in prayer, take pictures, support fundraising and communications, donate/serve meals for programs, provide oversight as a Board member and keep our facility beautiful.
See our current volunteer opportunities below, fill out our volunteer interest form, and join us in helping students open doors to hope and a future.
