9 people are interested
Mentor one of our fine scholars, ages 10 - 18 and empower them to make positive change. Boys Hope Girls Hope is a national nonprofit that helps children in need reach their full potential and become men and women for others through value-centered, family like homes, opportunities in the community, and education through college.
Mentors play a significant role in the Boys Hope Girls Hope program by partnering with one of our scholars, his or her family (when appropriate) and the program to provide support and encouragement. The mentor spends time with the scholar twice a month and maintains weekly communication with them in-between visits.
Who we serve & Why
Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.
BHGH is exponentially changing Cincinnati by providing high-potential kids with an exceptional education. We are raising a select group of disadvantaged young leaders in a nurturing home environment and offering a productive future that will resonate into the next generation. We address the causes of poverty, not merely the symptoms.
The mentor helps ensure scholar success by:
- Forming a supportive, open relationship with the scholar.
- Working cooperatively with others in the scholar's life to establish good communication and support systems.
- Expanding the scholar's horizons and stimulating growth through experience and communication.
- Supporting the scholar's academic life.
- Teaching the scholar valuable life skills.
- Serving as a role model.
- Participating in volunteer training.
- Providing continuing feedback to Boys Hope Girls Hope.
Mentoring benefits both scholar and mentor. The scholar gains the knowledge and sup-port of an adult who takes full interest in his or her academic and person well-being. The mentor has the opportunity to share knowledge, life experiences and love with a young person in need of his or her guidance and support. In the process, lives are transformed and life-long friendships are made.
