A wide range of services to support our projects
We collect metrics to develop annual Positive Impact Report illustrating and quantifying the impact we are making on our communities each year.
We work to close the information gap on expungement eligibility & social equity in the cannabis industry for bipoc & returning citizens.
We conduct ongoing DEI efforts in communities harmed by the war on drugs which include seminars, B2B networking, and legal support clinics.
Each One Teach One
Our non-profit organization has recently launched our Each One Teach One series. The Each One Teach One series provides a variety of programming. Events are hosted in Areas of Disproportionate Impact and include:
- Free Seminars
- B2B Networking
- A Legal Clinic focused on Record Expungement
The Fellowship Program
The program is designed to empower BIPOC and Social Equity Cannabis Entrepreneurs by leveraging our networks to connect fellows with cannabis industry experts, resources, training, and hands-on experience. Fellows are selected from areas disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs. Additionally, fellowship participants are certified Social Equity applicants in various stages of obtaining their cannabis licenses. Features of the fellowship program include connections to:
- Professionals, called “Fellowship Navigators” from the fields of Trade Law, Municipal Law, Marketing, Regulatory Compliance, and Accounting.
- Completion of the 6-month program merits Fellows with a certification from the Big Hope Project.

Big Hope Project in partnership with the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, has launched the Big Hope x BFIT Restorative Re-Entry Program.This program provides support and mentorship for those currently incarcerated or serving parole in Massachusetts jails. Features of the program include:
- Completion of a 3-month program resulting in a certification of course completion from Big Hope Project.

What community members say about us.
Its truly refreshing to see an organization representative of the issues affecting returning citizens and the melanated diaspoara. Not only does Big Hope Project on the ground to reach the people, they have a constant presence within the community.
Our city does not work without local nonprofits on the ground meeting the needs of community members. Organizations like Big Hope know the Joy and the pain of these residents, and often know where resources are needed the most.
Big Hope through their work is providing positive community impact, guidance, and mentorship for individuals from marginalized communities struggling with recidivism.
We are proud to support their efforts.
