Give Hope, Make Change
The Higher Opportunity Program for Education (HOPE) is a student-initiated project founded by UCLA’s Vietnamese Student Union (VSU) in 1999. HOPE is committed to outreaching to youths who face educational obstacles and exists to raise consciousness of and provide access to higher education through holistic empowerment. Under the support of the UCLA Community Programs Office (CPO) and the direction of VSU, HOPE strives to achieve its goals toward educational equity for all.

Academic tutoring provides a truly collaborative learning environment for all students to improve grades or study for their upcoming exams. From subjects like math to English to chemistry, HOPE aims to guide all students to academic success.
Through one-on-one peer advising, HOPE offers personal mentorship for students to discuss issues that affect them. By fostering trust and support, peer advisers can provide the much-needed guidance for the students to achieve their dreams.
With numerous topics delving into college applications, financial aid, AP review sessions, and even time management, HOPE hosts several workshops throughout the year to help students effectively balance both academic and personal life.
To dispel confusing stigmas about higher education, HOPE plans field trips, college tours, as well as three Shadow Days to allow the students to experience exploring campuses and perhaps aspire to attend such institutions after high school.
