Investing in rural and tribal citizen leaders who are improving education, ecological health, and economic development

Based in Bozeman, Montana, Hopa Mountain is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to investing in rural and tribal citizen leaders as they improve aspects of their community such as education, ecological health, and economic development through our eight principal programs. Our commitment to this investment is grounded in the idea that citizen leaders, whom are often the ones others turn to for help, are the most effective change-makers in their respective communities. We're often working with rural and tribal citizen leaders working primarily in the areas of early childhood education, informal science education, service-learning, ecological and human health, and nonprofit development. Our work is focused on recognizing the critical role citizen leaders play in nurturing healthy, vibrant communities; supporting their work by providing training, networking, mentoring, and financial support – to generate and expand much-needed opportunities in their communities.

Hope cannot be said to exist, nor can it be said not to exist. It is just like the roads across the Earth. For actually there were no roads to begin with, but when many people pass one way a road is made.
