To nurture and guide motivated young people in need
to become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others.

Some children just don’t have the same opportunities as others.

They face all kinds of barriers that limit their potential.

At the same time, they have inspiring grit, motivation, capacity, and promise; needing access to education and skills that will give them a chance to thrive in life and make a difference in their communities.

That’s where we come in.

Boys Hope Girls Hope closes the achievement gap and workforce development divide by acting as a bridge to opportunity which spans middle school through college graduation and into career launch.



“I’m grateful my son has the opportunity to partner with a program that motivates and teaches him to reach his full potential. Being in this program has helped increase his interest in college. I believe his attitude has changed because of his experience with BHGH.”


“Being a part of this amazing program is truly a blessing and an honor. I only wish everyone could receive the same love, care, and support that I got from this program. The staff are amazing! Between after school study halls and even now in college, they always keep in touch with me checking to see if I need anything.”

Our icon and colors have deep meaning for our scholars, collegians, alumni, and team members. It represents our diverse community coming together with our incredible scholars at the heart of everything we do.
