Exciting news!

The highly anticipated F.I. Youth Summer Program is finally here!

Are you looking for a great summer camp where your child will not only have a great time, but also learn things about leadership and personal development?  What about the power of entrepreneurship?  What about financial principles like budgeting, investments, and developing good credit?  What about philanthropy, volunteerism, and giving back to the community?  Well, look no further!  Moving Beyond Hope is collaborating with several area churches and organizations to bring this program to you!




On top of that, students will be participating in activities to earn money to spend at a special trip *

  • Week 3: FIY Market Day – Students work at negotiating and ‘keystoning’ to double money.
  • Week 5: FIY Market Day – Students use skills to work toward a goal.
  • Week 7: FIY Movie Night – students work on customer service skills as they run concessions and interact with patrons.

On top of all the great education that they’ll get, every graduate of our Kids’ Program will have a 529 Education Savings Plan started for them!  Yes!  You heard that right! A jump start into college!



Our students are smart, friendly, and highly motivated.  They just need a chance to prove that to the world!


By sponsoring one (or more) of our students, you’ll be helping us open a 529 Education Fund for them and jump start their college career.  You’ll also be helping us purchase workbooks and study materials dedicated to their needs.  With adequate funding, we can provide all of these things and help our students escape ‘the system’ and push toward a prosperous college career.


How much should you donate?  Just pick the level of impact that you want to make.  You can even add a short message of hope and encouragement to those you sponsor!


Sponsorship Options
Send your student a message.


Our kids will greatly appreciate it to know that they’re surrounded by a loving, caring community.  Your sponsorship will have a deep purpose and its significance will last for a lifetime.
