Our Mission

To inspire, support, and empower migrant high-school students to graduate from high school, assume leadership roles in their communities, and pursue a college education.



The Harvest of Hope Leadership Academy (HHLA) is a FREE academic enrichment program that serves high-school students eligible for migrant-education services. 

Each June since 2008, HHLA has provided a three-week Summer Academy in which students come to the University of Kansas campus to live, learn, and work together to:

  • explore and develop leadership skills, and
  • gain knowledge and skills to graduate from high school and pursue a college education.

During the academic year, HHLA continues to support migrant students’ educational success through regional workshops, newsletters, advising, and special programs.
