Boys Hope Girls Hope is a network of 15 US and three Latin American sites that prepare young people to thrive in college, career, and life.  Our scholars join the program in middle school, participate in a wide spectrum of youth development and academic programming, receive support through college degree completion.

We serve young people through both residential and non-residential programming. Potential scholars are selected based upon academic ability, motivation, and need.

The College Road is one of our most important areas of programming. The College Road, our multiyear, comprehensive college preparation program, prepares future collegians for ALL aspects and challenges of the College Experience--social, financial, and psychological as well as academic. It is designed to help young people from disadvantaged circumstances and first-generation collegians overcome the challenges specific to their situations.
