Youth Hope & Inspiration Inc. sponsors youth of disadvantaged and/or low-
income families to participate in activities.  We have sponsored 129 children to
participate in extracurricular activites/field trips (between $20 to $200 per
.  Youth sponsored must be in Grade K5 through 12th.  Although
sponsorship is based on each individual circumstance, youth eligible for free
lunch through their school system will receive primary consideration.
Currently, Youth Hope & Inspiration Inc. will contribute up to $50 towards a
child to participate in an extracurricular event.  However, there are special
instances when Youth Hope & Inspiration Inc. will exceed the minimum to
sponsor a child.

During the 2012 - 2015 school years, Youth Hope & Inspiration Inc.  hosted the
Mystery Solving Reading & Writing Club at Bridgeport Elementary School,
Indianapolis, IN.  Thus far, 234 students have participated.  The four week
program required participants to read and solve fifteen mysteries, write one
mystery, and complete a  grammar and math mystery activity. Their completion
of the  program earned each of the participants an Official Mystery Solving
Detective Award, a mini-mystery book (including mysteries written by each  
student in their class), a bookmark, two pencils and a magnifying glass.  

This program is a great way to prepare students for iStep.  It challenges
participants to use critical thinking and problem solving skills.  If you would like
to host the program at your school, please contact Catina Barnett, Executive
Director at (317) 658-6655 or via email at  There is no cost for the students to
