For Students

The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.

If you’re here, you took the first step

Seeking help is at the heart of HopeWorks. A simple Google search or recommendation from a friend shows that you’re willing to make a change that will positively impact your life. From here, we can help you chart a new path forward. 

When we set out more than three decades ago, we wanted to provide hope and a job to students across Memphis – students just like you and your loved ones. 

You haven’t run out of chances – not with God, not with HopeWorks. It is never too late for a new start. 

If you’re having trouble keeping a job, we can help. If your sister was recently released from prison and doesn’t feel like she has career options, we can help. If your friend wants to earn his high school equivalency diploma, we can help. Our programs will help people reach their goals, find stable work and see their future through a new lens.

What program is right for you or your loved one? We have several programs to support students in Memphis and Shelby County. Read the descriptions below and follow the links provided to learn about each opportunity provided by HopeWorks.
