Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City (BHGH of KC) is a long-term and comprehensive year-round residential scholarship program focused on whole-person youth development with emphasis on education. BHGH of KC works with boys who are highly capable but have family circumstances that would otherwise limit their opportunities to reach their full potential. There is no other college preparatory program in our region that combines a rigorous, comprehensive array of educational resources and programming with around-the-clock care to children whose living situation would otherwise likely be a tremendous barrier to their success. BHGH of KC uses the gifts of education, the stability of home, and the promise of hope as instruments for transforming children’s lives. BHGH of KC invests deeply in a select number of high potential youth who, at a significant rate, overcome harmful, systemic environmental risk factors and become high performers with a commitment to bettering themselves and their communities. The emphasis is placed on quality over quantity and depth over breadth.
