  • Academic Record & Immunizations
  • Letter from the child to our Board of Directors requesting consideration.
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship or legal residence.

--Once the completed application has been received by Boys Hope Girls Hope, the program director will review the application. If the applicant meets the BHGH criteria, he or she will move on to the next phase of the application process. This includes a 3-day visit to Boys Hope or Girls Hope in Baton Rouge and psychological/academic testing.


--Following the visit & testing, the program committee of the Board of Directors determines a decision on acceptance into the program.

The entire application process takes approximately 4-6 months. If you have any questions about the application process please call our office or e-mail John Daniel.
