The core of Lynchburg Beacon of Hope’s programs are through the Future Centers, operated directly inside of Lynchburg City School high schools. These Future Centers are designed to serve as post-secondary access hubs, working in partnership with school counseling, administrators, the local economic development community, and local post-secondary providers to provide a seamless talent pipeline for Lynchburg’s young people.
The primary goal of Future Centers is to empower our students to remove the barriers that prevent them from pursuing what’s next. We work to increase Access, Affordability, Achievement, and Awareness for every student to go onto work or education after high school.
Lynchburg Beacon of Hope’s high school Future Centers are 100% privately-funded; our partnership does not involve a public budget line-item, save the in-kind donation of space. But our satellite centers offer opportunities to fund Future Centers through 100% public funding or a hybrid mix of public-private funds.
