To nurture and guide motivated young people in need
to become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others.
Some children just don’t have the same opportunities as others.
They face all kinds of barriers that limit their potential.
At the same time, they have inspiring grit, motivation, capacity, and promise; needing access to education and skills that will give them a chance to thrive in life and make a difference in their communities.
That’s where we come in.
Boys Hope Girls Hope closes the achievement gap and workforce development divide by acting as a bridge to opportunity which spans middle school through college graduation and into career launch.
"Since being in America and now being a part of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City, I feel I am finally being fought for. I feel like because of this opportunity I can finally dream of my future and become a man for others."
"I want to be me and contribute to the world with what I'm good at. I wouldn't know where I would be right now without this program. It's really helping me a lot and it's put me in a safer place than I was."
