We’re excited to share that we’ve received a $2 million gift from the Yield Giving Open Call!

The #YieldGivingOpenCall – managed by Lever for Change – focused on elevating organizations working with people and in places experiencing the greatest need in the United States – and our organization does just that!

Boys Hope Girls Hope of New York helps motivated high school students rise above disadvantaged backgrounds. We work hard to strategize different ways we can bridge gaps to resources that help better prepare our scholars for their future.

These resources consist of internships, academic programming, career-readiness, college preparation and providing safe spaces for their development.
