Our program broadens the definition of family to include the community charged with guiding our youth toward the best versions of themselves. Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona provides holistic services to foster growth in our scholars and to cultivate their innate resilience.

We support our scholars from adolescence through college graduation and beyond, offering a holistic spectrum of programming that evolves with the age and needs of youth.

The Boys Hope Girls Hope experience includes:

  • Long-term interaction with other college-bound scholars and highly-trained team members through high school graduation
  • Attending a local, academically-challenging, college-preparatory partner school
  • Goal-setting, mentoring, and tutoring as well as emotional, spiritual and academic support
  • Learning life, character, and leadership skills, and growing in one’s own faith
  • Extracurricular activities and opportunities, including a focus on service to others
  • College planning, visits, transition, and assistance with scholarship funds
  • Networking with business professionals, including Boys Hope Girls Hope alumni


All Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars participate in long-term, quality holistic programming in five core areas, all within our unique long-term mission promise. These promises are delivered in Arizona through the Academy Pathway and continue through college and beyond.


Boys Hope Girls Hope Scholars begin their journey with us in middle school and stay with us through high school, college, and career launch.  Whether in our Academy or Residential pathway, Scholars move along together as we channel their energy, and leverage their talents, strengths, and passions into an individual plan that helps them reach their full potential.

Empowered Learning

Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars get ongoing academic support such as tutoring and college preparatory coaching.  Residential scholars receive an academic scholarship, affording them an opportunity to get a first-class education at one of our partner schools.

Life Preparedness

In addition to help with their academics, all scholars learn basic skills they need to live happy, productive lives, such as budgeting, communication skills, household chores, planning for the future, following a recipe, travel basics, and opening a bank account.

Personal Development

Boys Hope Girls Hope programming includes social & emotional awareness and physical activities that promote all-around health and well-being. Scholars are encouraged to explore their own spirituality as a critical part of living a healthy, well-adjusted life.  All Scholars are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities that feed their purpose and passion.

Leadership & Service

Boys Hope Girls Hope Scholars are taught to become people for others—to live with purpose and give back to others in need.  This is reinforced through community service; dialogue about important global and local issues; and the development of their own passions for social justice and being a change maker in their family and community.

College & Career Readiness

Our career preparation and leadership programming helps scholars identify their strengths and talents and what future careers they are interested in.  Then, with mentoring, setting educational goals, planning, assistance with jobs and internships, as well as mock interviews and other experiential opportunities, we help get them there. Boys Hope Girls Hope remains a network of support for our Alumni.


We serve young people with grit and determination needing access and opportunity. Need includes a variety of tough situations such as poverty, family stress, parent/guardian illness, neighborhood violence or underperforming schools—most anything that would create significant barriers to a child reaching his or her full potential.
