Boys Hope Girls Hope

Goal of Program

The mission of Boys Hope Girls Hope is to nurture and guide motivated young people in need to become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others. The goal of our volunteer program is to recruit dedicated individuals who will support the mission of Boys Hope Girls Hope through services to our scholars, especially in the areas of academic achievement and college admission, and by being role models of our organizational values of service and persons for others.

Type of Placement

Our National Volunteer Corps members usually live in the homes with our scholars becoming part of a team of residential counselors, and focus primarily on academic success and community involvement of scholars, or other tasks related to the multi-faceted care we provide. Activities may focus on academic preparation, college counseling, co-curricular learning, and the development of ongoing opportunities for scholars to better understand cultural diversity through service-learning projects. Volunteers also assist in caring for scholars through driving, meal preparation, and general supervision. Regardless of their primary role, our volunteers provide the most fundamental need of all. They help build the loving and supportive family dynamic and home environment that all children need to feel secure.
