Festival of Hope

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Detroit annually hosts a community-wide celebration of Black History Month called Festival of Hope. This event is a multi-cultural fellowship and celebration of love and light. Each year a theme is selected by our Scholars to highlight an area of social and emotional awareness. Scholars, their families, and community supporters join together to meet current community needs.
