What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The mission of Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) is to nurture and guide motivated young people in need to become well-educated, career-ready men and women for others. Education is the cornerstone of the Boys Hope Girls Hope’s mission and purpose. BHGH Scholars are enrolled in private parochial and or college preparatory schools from sixth grade through high school emphasizing rigorous academics and personal responsibility and character. Scholars receive the support they need to excel including enrollment in private, college preparatory schools, books, school supplies, technology access, mentoring, tutoring and structured college preparation. BHGH transports scholars from school to our Learning center, sports, clubs, activities, events, and other meaningful experiences.

Program History

Originally founded in 1977 in St. Louis, Missouri by Father Paul Sheridan as a residential model, Boys Hope Girls Hope came to Arizona in 1989. BHGH provides access to private and college preparatory education and holistic support through college for high-achieving, under-resourced Arizona children. BHGH tackles the root causes of poverty and poor achievement by addressing two of the greatest needs of marginalized youth: a strong academic foundation and emotional support. Through BHGH, scholars gain access to the resources and support necessary to attain a college degree, become true leaders, and break the generational cycle of poverty.

Population(s) Served

Adolescents

Education is the cornerstone of the BHGH mission and purpose. Through a voluntary, competitive process, youth apply to BHGH. All youth receive long-term, comprehensive support to develop academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually and are supported through college graduation. The Scholar Success program provides case management, development and post-secondary success programming year-round for 90 BHGH 6th grade students through college seniors. Scholars receive the support they need to excel including tuition to private schools, fees, books, school supplies, mentoring, tutoring and structured college preparation. BHGH provides means for scholars to participate in sports, clubs, events, and other meaningful experiences, including therapeutic counseling, social-emotional programming, and cultural development.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona (BHGH) helps academically capable and motivated children ­in ­need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing scholarships for quality education, out of school youth development, service to community, and resources and support through college. We believe children have the capacity to transcend their circumstances if given a safe environment, opportunities, and loving support; and respect for the dignity, values, unique perspectives, and talents of every individual is the foundation of positive social and emotional development, as well as strong and vibrant communities.

Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) offers private school tuition, college preparation, support and enrichment opportunities to academically-capable and motivated youth from low income families.

BHGH provides scholars with financial, academic, and emotional support from as early as 6th grade through the completion of a four-year college degree.

Scholars are enrolled in private college-preparatory middle and high schools, and provided tuition, books, school supplies, uniforms and the support they need to excel.

BHGH focuses on academic, social, spiritual, emotional and physical development.

Scholars participate in tutoring, counseling, mentoring, homework support and a variety of social enrichment activities.

BHGH ensures that scholars engage in a range of extracurricular activities, both with their schools and in the broader community.

BHGH program staff facilitates a robust series of workshops to ensure scholars are ready to be self-sufficient young adults in support of and in coordination with their schooling. This curriculum includes life-skills, SAT/ACT preparation, study skills and service learning. Volunteers teach seminars on financial literacy, career exploration, and more. Additionally, BHGH scholars embark on a My Roads online portal system filled with a variety of enrichment activities and transitional workshops that assess college readiness. Through the portal, BHGH scholars take regular assessments that test their study and learning strategies and receive specific instruction or help in the areas needed.

BHGH has 90 scholars presently in our program from 6th grade to college students. We are continuing to support our scholars as the trajectory of their lives as wells as their families lives change. We are breaking the cycle of poverty through education and enrichment.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
