We’re Looking for Motivated Young People with Grit and Determination
Know of someone you’d like to nominate for the program? Here’s why you should consider:
Our program is designed to help motivated young people who need the space to thrive with a sturdy foundation for success. We enhance the education of our scholars by providing individualized guidance and maintaining stability and structure in a nurturing environment. Each scholar participates in many enrichment opportunities to support academic and personal development. The Boys Hope Girls Hope experience is a long-term, voluntary, holistic scholarship program.
Applicants for Boys Hope Girls Hope must be:
- Between the ages of 10 and 14 when applying
- Ambitious and motivated, and have positive goals and a cooperative work ethic
- Capable of thriving in an academically rigorous setting and completing challenging coursework; not suffering with behavioral or substance abuse issues or learning disabilities
- Willing to adapt to Boys Hope Girls Hope’s value-centered, family-like environment and embrace high expectations in showing concern for others
- Supported by their family who is willing to collaborate with the program team and accompany their child on the journey to academic achievement and personal growth
- In need of access and opportunity, with family or community factors that would otherwise be a barrier to academic and personal success
Family is integral to every scholar’s success.
Partnership with parents and guardians is essential to the Boys Hope Girls Hope program. We work closely with families and include parents in goal setting and decisions related to their scholars’ health, well-being, and academic achievement. Scholars who join the program are expanding their personal network to include other Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars, collegians, alumni team members, and mentors from the community.
Although Boys Hope Girls Hope of Cincinnati is not a traditional family service agency, many parents and guardians benefit while their child is in the program, including gaining information on, and referral to, community resources, parenting guidance, crisis intervention and informal counseling.
