We support our scholars from adolescence through college graduation and beyond, offering a holistic spectrum of programming that evolves with the age and needs of youth.
The Boys Hope Girls Hope experience includes:
  • Long-term interaction with other college-bound scholars and highly-trained team members through high school graduation
  • Attending a local, academically-challenging, college-preparatory partner school
  • Goal-setting, mentoring, and tutoring as well as emotional, spiritual and academic support
  • Learning life, character, and leadership skills, and growing in one’s own faith
  • Extracurricular activities and opportunities, including a focus on service to others
  • College planning, visits, transition, and assistance with scholarship funds
  • Networking with business professionals, including Boys Hope Girls Hope alumni


Our Academy program functions as a loving and nurturing family atmosphere, a dynamic environment with a sense of belonging, central to healthy adolescent development.

The program is a coed, academic, and life-learning after-school program that serves middle school, high school, and college scholars. Operating primarily on campus at Archbishop Riordan High School in San Francisco – one of our long-standing academic partners – scholars receive academic support and tutoring, service-learning and career exploration, college-bound literacy and college application, tuition assistance and financial support. The program is 100% privately funded, and 87% of the funds directly support the scholars.

Collegians & Alumni

Collegian & Alumni

We not only prepare college aspirants for all aspects and challenges of the college experience, but continue to provide academic, social, emotional and financial support through college graduation.

For Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars, a college education is not a dream, it is an expectation. Each scholar uses a digital MyRoad Portfolio, which is a personalized guide to his/her college preparation activities from 7th grade through the college planning process.  Through the Boys Hope Girls Hope Scholarship Fund and University Partnerships Initiative, scholars have opportunities to apply for dedicated scholarship funds and enhanced financial aid packages.


We serve young people with grit and determination needing access and opportunity. Need includes a variety of tough situations such as poverty, family stress, parent/guardian illness, neighborhood violence or underperforming schools—most anything that would create significant barriers to a child reaching his or her full potential.
