Meet the masterminds and creative team behind Generation Hope!
The Youth Council are Generation Hope members who voluntarily give up their time to help plan, develop and explore ways in which Generation Hope can grow and stay intune with the evolving lives and lifestyles of their peers.

Hannah Luke

Hannah Luke

Generation Hope Youth Worker

Hannah is employed by Hope UK to oversee Generation Hope.  She organises activities and weekends, looks after members and helps create opportunities for them to grow in their skills, talk about their faith and educate others about drugs and alcohol.
As child number six of nine children, she is accustomed to lots of noise and people and loves hanging out with young people. She lives in London, loves to chat, bake, read and, as a random fact, within 13 months moved house 10 times!

Asher

Asher

Youth Council Member

Asher is one of our most active Generation Hope class A members!
His most recent adventure involved flying to Scotland and talking to young people there about Generation Hope (he also got asked to be interviewed for the Free Youth Magazine up there).
With a huge passion for God, football, young people and just generally chatting to others, he is always up for new things and meeting new people. He also loves sleep and anything sugary!

Esther

Esther

Youth Council Member

Esther is full of ideas, creativity and conversation.
She has a habit of often bursting into song or breaking out some dances moves when at residential weekends.
She (not so secretly) hates British cuisine and wants nothing more than to open her own Korean Restaurant. A lover of music, dancing, culture and arts, Esther is constantly thinking creatively!

Ellie

Ellie

Youth Council Member

Ellie is the newest Generation Hope member to become a Council Member and is super friendly and wonderful to hang out with!
She is a lover of Disney movies and is likely to be a professional violinist in the future. She has an adventurous side when out and about and does not mind her feet or hands getting wet. Along with school, her hobbies and family, she helps Pheobe plan how to take over the world (apparently she gave Phoebe the book!)

Joseph

Joseph

Youth Council Member

Joseph has been with Generation Hope for many years so is accustomed to stepping out of his comfort zone and being thrown into new situations! He is not one to shy away from a challenge, especially during detached drug education where time and time again he proves that will-power can overcome fear or discomfort.  Joseph is a lover of sleep, having long in-depth conversations, making jokes and occasionally enjoys a long run with his brother Ben!

Rosie

Rosie

Youth Council Member

Rosie loves to make a statement; be it by her outfit (she likes to Cosplay), opinion, clothes accessories or taste in movies.  She likes to make a mark! In the Youth Council Meetings, she likes to push the boundaries by challenging policies and requesting ambitious events (but we love her for it.).
She is a huge driver of people and a big encourager to/for her own peers and the younger Generation.

Kitty

Kitty

Youth Council Member

Kitty is a lover of puns and cracking a good joke! She seems to always have the most hilarious stories and anecdotes to share (the time she chased and herded sheep is a good one). She is a natural encourager of others and loves to chat and get to know people better. She enjoys politics and men’s hoodies/trousers and jumpers!

Benjamin (Ben)

Benjamin (Ben)

Youth Council Member

Benjamin (or Ben as he is often called) is a ball of energy, deep thinker and future theological-politician! (Him and Phoebe are probably planning world dictatorship together.)
He is a huge people person and never shy’s away from a challenge, be it a game, leading a session or approaching passers-by at the detached drug education sessions.  He loves PE, running and food!

Ruth

Ruth

Youth Council Member

Ruth has been involved with Generation Hope drug education sessions and weekend residentials for many years and is a natural nurturer of people.
Studying Media, she is a pro with a camera and doing lip-sync videos as part of her project. She ‘loves’ Korean culture and is learning the language and wants nothing more than to visit the country itself!

Joshua

Joshua

Youth Council Member

Joshua (or Josh as we call him) loves the deep conversations that happen when running drug education sessions and loves the sessions about God at the Generation Hope residential weekends.
Studying Graphics at the University of Hertfordshire, he is also a HUGE fan of the Marvel and DC Universe comics and is even working on his own superhero storyline!

Phoebe

Phoebe

Youth Council Member

Phoebe’s main ambition in life is to be World Dictator (she even has a book that tells her how!). Despite this, she loves to indulge in deep conversations about life, the world and theology. She wants to live in the Paperchase shop and writes her own stories about villains and heroes!

Sarah Brighton

Sarah Brighton

CEO of Hope UK

Sarah is the CEO of Hope UK and Hannah’s boss.
Frozen forever at the age of 21, Sarah is a young person at heart and in spirit. She has huge dreams for the young Christians of the next generation and always encourages and pushes them to be the best they can be (and even more!).
She is an avid reader (and hates to throw away books), lover of politics and history and recently admitted that she eats houmous with her fingers!
