PARTNERSHIPS THAT GIVE HOPE
With the belief that we could accomplish more together than alone, with SAY Detroit Play Center, we shared resources, knowledge, and networks to expand our reach and bring about lasting change for the youth we served.
The partnership between Boys Hope Girls Hope of Detroit and SAY Detroit Play Center has allowed the affiliate to bring their academy programs from their three different partner schools to one location where they can learn and grow together as a cohort! Not only that, but the Boys Hope Girls Hope program brings valuable resources to the youth already attending the Play Center in return.

SERVING OTHERS IN NEED
Becoming well-educated and career-ready is all complimented by a focus on living a life of service to others—a key component of Boys Hope Girls Hope’s proven track record of life-transforming impact on scholar success. Our scholars regularly participate in community service activities, complete service reflections, research community issues they are passionate about, brainstorm solutions they can offer, and lead service projects.
