Meet James, president of our Community Associates Board!

Our scholars’ success is due in large part to our network of volunteers who give back each and every day. We’re very thankful for generous people such as James who give their time and effort to our youth. Here’s what James had to say about his experience working with our students at Boys Hope Girls Hope of San Francisco.

“Over the last year and a half, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) as a volunteer and member of CAB. Ever since my initial program orientation, I have been amazed by the maturity, dedication, and thoughtfulness of every scholar. As a volunteer, it is a pleasure to work with motivated students who are seizing and creating any opportunity to achieve their dreams. The depth of the program is also helping to fill the subtle gaps in personal and professional development that perpetuate generations of poverty. Importantly, the real backbone of this effort is Kevin and Perry: both staff members exceed their commitments to the scholars each day and have stretched themselves as the program has grown. It has been an honor to serve Boys Hope Girls Hope and help a young group of students realize a success uninhibited by circumstance.”
