Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona Launches Strategic Growth Initiative and Expansion of Academy Program!

Goal to double number of youth served by 2030

We are excited to share with you the amazing news of growth and change: BHGH AZ’s Academy Launch 2.0!  Click the button below to read a  document highlighting BHGH AZ’s Strategic Growth Initiative, which summarizes the research, planning and facets upon which the Strategic Growth Initiative was established.

This growth path includes transitioning away from residential services after June 2023, and increasing the learning center-based Academy Program while continuing to provide long-term, comprehensive support through the College Program. As you will read, BHGH AZ’s goal is to double the number of scholars served by 2030 and we will begin increasing the Academy Program capacity next school year!  This change will generate extremely positive scholar outcomes at nearly a third less cost – exponentially increasing our donors’ impact!

We are confident that these changes will lead to a positive and thriving future for BHGH AZ and our scholars.  We hope that you will join us in celebrating this change and continue your involvement and support to help more motivated youth in-need to become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions!
