OUR MISSION

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.

 

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