About Us


Started by a group of mothers desiring to teach their children the
importance of giving back and serving others, Rays of Hope
began in 2006 with a group of children - our children - who
served in soup kitchens and sang at Nursing Homes during
Christmas. The annual volunteer opportunities served as a
means of exposing our children to people of different
socioeconomic backgrounds and generations. As the children
grew older, we recognized the need to broaden our scope and
frequency of activities as well as invite other youth from the
community to participate. Resultantly, Rays of Hope was
incorporated as an organization in September 2014. We
recieved our 501 (c)3 status in 2015.

Although Rays of Hope was not started as a means of meeting
the educational system’s graduation requirement for
community service, it has now become an added benefit for the


To create service and leadership development opportunities for
youth, thereby empowering them to become caring, productive
and engaged members of the community. This will be
accomplished through their participation in planning outreach
projects as well as participating in learning opportunities that
educate them on the basics of personal finance, public
speaking, entrepreneurship, public service and organizational

Director’s Message

Dear 2019 Graduates,

It has been our privilege to serve with you over the years. As senior
members, your passion and dedication have served as an example to
all the youth members in the organization.

Not only did you persevere to get where you are today, but many others
around you had helped and supported you through this journey.

Through Rays Of Hope, you have become active members of the
community and have had a lasting positive impact on society. You
have acquired life skills and knowledge as well as provided service to
those who needed it the most.

You have learned to think beyond “'I, me, myself” and now have a wider
perspective on life. We know that you will continue to be an advocate
and a voice for those that are marginalized or ignored whether on your
college campus or in society.

As you begin the next chapter of your life, do not lose sight of the
important values that have been instilled in you. As the great actor,
Denzel Washington said, “Keep Working, Keep Striving, Never Give Up-
-Fall Down 7 Times, Get Up 8!”

Let joy be your highest form of success. The more fulfillment you feel in
your life, the more abundant you will be. The more you follow your
heart, the richer your life will be.

Never lose focus. We are so proud to have you become Rays OF Hope
Alumni members. "Tell them you are Rising!”

“Be the best for yourself first,
the rest of the world can wait”

I am affectionately known as Danapooh amongst my family members and close
friends. I am the youngest child of three. Effective June 20, 2019, I will be a
graduate of Jackson
Liberty H.S. Class of 2019. Throughout my High School years, I enjoyed
participating in sports. I have played basketball in middle school and Junior
Varsity in High school. In addition i have also played basketball forA.A.U. team
Lady Heat for two years. However, Tennis became my favored sport in which I
played for two years and received my varsity Letter. My passion is singing. I have
a broad range in vocals that allows me to sing songs by my favorite artists such as
Whitney Houston, Beyon’ce, Aundra Day, and Yolonda Adams, just to name a

I attributes much of my career planning to the Rays of Hope organization lead
by Mrs. Lisa Hall. It was through this organization that I learned how to live
outside the box. I made many friends and learned how to give back to the
community through volunteer service. The college tours we took to visit
H.B.C.U’s opened my mind to supporting colleges that support my culture. I
found Rays of Hope to be a new gateway that opened my mind to the many
options and choices I have available in my life.

I will be attending William Patterson University in the Fall of 2019, pursuing
my career in nursing.

Jaida Rodriques

“Without community service, we would not have a strong
quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as
well as the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves

grow and develop.”

-Dorothy Height

Jaida Rodriques is a Senior at DoaneAcademy and has been a committed member of
Rays of Hope since the 7th grade.This fall she will be a freshman at Spelman College
majoring in political science with a concentration in international relations.

Jaida has always been eager to serve not only the community but as a leader in the
organization. As Vice President her junior year , she’s led many initiatives that were
important to our community. In this position, she organized family fun nights at a
women and children's homeless shelter, decorated for the holidays at a Ronald
McDonald House and conducted activities during autism awareness month,
including hosting an interview with teens that are on the autistic spectrum.

Not all of Jaida’s service work has been physical. In school Jaida has served as a source
of knowledge for her peers on topics such as college awareness and preparedness and
the celebration of black history and culture . Particularly, Jaida and a small group of
peers spearheaded a Black HistoryAwareness Month which celebrated and recognized
black history. They hung posters around campus, lled with imagery and
information on monumental gures in black history. Ensuring that people were
intrigued at rst glance but that the learnings and takeaways would be lasting.At the
conclusion of the month, she spoke with the school administration and they
expressed their delight with the teams’efforts to educate and entertain the Doane
Community about aspects of Black History. What was not realized at the time, was
that their impact was much greater. One of her previous history teachers pushed for
the implementation of a class called The African American Experience which Jaida
and many other students attended.

For the past 7 years Jaida has been serving at her church's daycare every Sunday. Jaida
is often serves at the reception desk where she signs children in and offers reassurance
to parents that their infants are in good hands. Jaida is also trusted with assisting
children church classes if a teacher is unavailable or needs assistance. Her favorite
group of kids are the toddlers where she and a set of adopted triplets have bonded

During her nal year in highschool Jaida was elected president of a community
service club called the Kindness Project .This year Jaida led school wide events such as
the initiative to organize over 7,000 packages of food at the in New Jersey Food Bank.

Jaida’s dedication and proactiveness towards community service has been recognized
by many, including Spelman College where she was recently accepted into the Bonner
Scholars program in which 20 students a year are selected to act as engineers of
change in the community and exemplify the values of Spelman College as well as the
goals of the Bonner Scholars Program. Commitment to providing “access to
education with an opportunity to serve.”

such as: Hallway committee, Prom committee, Bible club, and Interact club.

In 2016, Jamilah and seven other girls organized a girl empowerment conference at
Princeton University. Jamilah’s key role as one of the organizers was to market the event
and manage the transportation to ensure that all of the over 200 registered girls were
able to attend.

Jamilah was one of two girls selected from over 500 to host the American Girl’s web
series, AG Life. Jamilah had the opportunity to inspire girls using the American Girl’s
platform by giving tips and showing them ways to be condent.

Jamilah also had the opportunity to give back through performances when she was
casted in Girl Be Heard’s Mainstage Show,“2030;The Future Is Ours”. Girl Be Heard is
an organization that develops, amplies, and celebrates the voices of young women
through socially conscious theatre-making. Each show tackles social justice issues that
are current and important to the cast members. The “2030; The Future Is Ours”show
was about the United Nation’s sustainable development goals and each cast member
wrote original pieces focusing on their goals for the future. Jamilah wrote the opening
song as well as a spoken word piece on poverty. With Girl Be Heard, Jamilah was
afforded the opportunity to perform at multiple events including the Women History
event at the NewYork Public Library held by the NewYork Comptroller, Scott Stringer,
and council member, JumaaneWilliams.

Jamilah is the founder of “Girls with Beauty and Brains”, which is a girl empowerment
blog created to encourage young women who suffer from insecurities and provide them
with resources to empower and motivate them to reach their highest potential. She also
has a series on her blog called, Fabulous Confabulation, which is a one on one chat with
inspiring women and girls in different career elds to provide viewers with insight on
how to reach their dreams. She hopes to create a scholarship fund for girls so they get the
opportunity to attend college as well.

Jamilah has been a member of Rays of Hope for eight years and served as treasurer on
the board for the 2016-2017 school year. One of Jamilah’s favorite initiatives is working
with children. She loves volunteering at the Homefront Family Shelter where she gets to
interact with the kids. Rays of Hope has pushed Jamilah out of her comfort zone and
encouraged her to be a leader wherever she goes.

Rays of Hope succeeded in their mission in developing future leaders as a powerful force
to be reckoned with in this world because Jamilah is one of them.

Elicia Villaurel

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.”

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

EliciaVillaurel is a ve year member of Rays of Hope and recent graduate from Doane
Academy in Burlington NJ. She has been a consistent voice at the ROH yearly planning
meetings and served as the organization’sVice President for the 2018-2019 year.

Elicia rings curiosity about the world around her, clear communication skills and a
strong sense of justice to all of her activities. She has worked tirelessly in and out of
school to feed her curiosity and learn more. During the summer, Elicia participates in
enriching summer programs and had her rst internship last summer with the National
Medical Association. In school, she has started many initiatives centered around
diversity and inclusion and most recently led a Mental Health and Stigma initiative in
May. Elicia has held many prominent positions in her school community such as Vice
President of her class, President of the Student Body and President of the Equality
club at her school.

Elicia is a“doer”. As a result of her leadership, her school has hosted numerous new
policies, classes, events, speakers and discussions on campus. She is a strong advocate for
the issues that fuel her passions for inclusion and diversity. She tirelessly works with her
fellow club members, teachers and school administrators to ensure that projects are well
organized and executed effectively which has resulted in a 100% success rate.

Elicia is a great public speaker and striver that has represented her school in regional
competitions for MockTrial and Poetry Out Loud and has received state recognition.

Elicia is going to American University in DC, and wants to study civil engineering,
urban development, and law. She is passionately interested in understanding the
different aspects of how people in poverty are mistreated by the governmental system.
Elicia has been in teen sharp for six years. During her time with Rays of hope, Elicia has
been apart of the planning committee for the years events.This year she was appointed
Vice President, and has worked closely with the rest of the leadership team to organize
leadership development meetings, organizing service projects and planning events like
The Live Black Museum, Scholarship Brunch and MLK Day weekend. She is looking
forward to making a difference in communities by closely working with urban planners.
Her hopes are to do her part in lowering the unemployment rates and making sure
urban communities have equal access to good health care facilities. Equally important,
another of her other initiatives would be to revitalize establishments without
displacing current residents, basically working to build up the community’s
infrastructure rather than restarting with new ones. As a civil engineer or urban
planner, she hopes to have the opportunity to evaluate plans and various projects that
can greatly determine the wellbeing of people in predominantly urban communities.
Essentially, her aspirations in life are always to make a helpful difference in this world.

Jamilah means “Beautiful” girl in Arabic. Kind sweet gentle
person. Person who cares for people, enjoy giving, and always

tries to make peace. God gave your dad and I that name for
you because He knew exactly the type of girl you would be. You

are brilliant, able, and ambitious. You shall always walk the
glory road and may God continue to bless you with all that you
need to earn many more achievements and feats in life ahead.

Our sweet Jamilah, know that the journey of life brings both
challenges and chances. May you carry the word of God and

your strong spirit to snatch the chances and defeat the
challenges. We love you to life and we are super proud of you.

Congratulations and well done.
