The long-term, voluntary, scholarship program at Girls Hope is designed to help academically capable and motivated girls in need build a sturdy foundation for success. Through our comprehensive program, we enhance the education of our scholars by providing individualized guidance and maintaining stability and structure in a nurturing home environment. Each scholar participates in a number of enrichment opportunities to support academic and personal development.
Once a child has been referred to Girls Hope, a staff member will contact the prospecting scholar and her parent or guardian to schedule a visit and complete an application. We will also request school records for the child. If she meets our admission criteria, she will be invited to stay at one of our residential homes for a weekend-long visit. The final step for admission is approval from the Girls Hope Program Committee.
