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.  Participants, known as “scholars,” enter the comprehensive and long-term array of positive youth development and academic programming in middle school and receive support through college degree completion and career entry.  Residential educational placement is available.  Young people and their guardians apply for the Boys Hope Girls Hope scholarship and are selected based upon academic ability, motivation, and need.
