Volunteer Opportunities
Ways to donate, support, or volunteer
  • Donors can mail a check to: Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City, 12307 State Line Road, Kansas City MO  64145
  • Donate online at www.bhghkc.org.
  • In-kind donations are welcome. Call 816.942.2335 for details.
  • Community volunteers are an integral part of the BHGH of KC experience for scholars. 

    Volunteers provide the crucial academic support and personal attention that is at the heart of our mission. They bring their experience as parents to children who may never have experienced parenting. They bring their experience as business professionals to help our offices run more smoothly. They share their expertise, their knowledge, and their time with children who may never have had a caring adult take a personal interest in them.

Tutor. We ask that tutors make a one to two hour commitment per week. While tutoring experience is not required, volunteers should be comfortable explaining concepts, reviewing homework, providing test preparation, teaching study skills and working with flash cards.

Mentor. Mentors enrich our scholars by broadening their perspectives and helping them to manage daily challenges. In particular, mentors are needed to help our scholars explore areas of career interest, apply to college and pursue individual interests in art, music, sports and other activities. We ask each mentor to commit to spending one to two hours a week with a scholar for at least one year.

Cook. Like many families, our scholars share dinner together every night. If you have culinary talents, consider lending them to dinner preparation for the BHGH of KC scholars. You can then stay and share a home-cooked meal with our scholars and staff. Meals may also be donated by local restaurants.

Share. BHGH of KC staff runs very lean to ensure that the majority of dollars we raise go to support our scholars. As a result, we always appreciate volunteers with professional, organizational and administrative skills who can help in our office. Our scholars also appreciate the opportunity to learn about careers and life skills from professionals in the community.

Background Statement

Boys Hope Girls Hope was founded in 1977, by Father Paul Sheridan, in Saint Louis, Missouri. Father Sheridan’s unique residential model for talented and motivated young men was designed to develop young people in the spirit of the whole person. The program’s success led to its rapid replication across the country. More than three decades later, Boys Hope Girls Hope has grown to include affiliates in fifteen U.S. cities and three foreign countries.

Since full potential can only be realized through education, Fr. Sheridan placed children in top-rated schools best suited to their needs. He set high expectations—and gave his scholars everything they needed to meet them.

Because children need a stable home and family, he created family-style, non-institutional homes that recreated the family dynamic. In Boys Hope Girls Hope homes, committed house parents provide crucial parenting; older scholars became siblings and role models to younger ones; and all performed household chores together, cementing the family bonds.

To instill in his scholars the universal moral value of altruism, all scholars attended weekly services consistent with their religious backgrounds and participated in community service projects.

And he provided academic, financial, and spiritual support through college.

Boys Hope Girls Hope understands that parents are the most important part of any child’s life, and we work hand in hand with parents to help them provide what their children need. We partner with parents to help their children overcome the obstacles that their circumstances have placed in their way to success.

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City:

Plans for the Kansas City affiliate began in 2004 when founders met to determine the viability of a BHGH program for the Kansas City metropolitan area, including Jackson, Wyandotte and Johnson counties in Missouri and Kansas. With more than two years in planning, a purpose-built home was constructed in south Kansas City, Missouri. Licensed for up to 10 boys, the home opened in 2006. 

Unlike other child advocacy programs, BHGH of KC makes a long-term commitment to each of the scholars. They enter the program as early as 5th grade and can maintain the BHGH of KC home as their primary residence through college graduation.

Boys are referred to BHGH of KC by a number of sources, and candidates are reviewed for scholarship consideration by a multi-tier process, including recommendations, academic testing, and psychological interviews. The ideal candidate is between 10 and 14 at the time of admission; capable of succeeding in a rigorous academic environment; motivated to achieve; free from learning disorders and emotional behavioral problems; and drug and alcohol free. In addition, the candidate must understand and accept the expectations of the BHGH of KC program; be open to a long-term value-centered and nurturing residential environment; have the ability to positively relate to peers and authority; and have the support or consent from family/guardian.

BHGH of KC scholars receive a college preparatory, private school education at a partner school, St. Thomas More Middle School, Lincoln Preparatory Academy, Lutheran High School and Rockhurst High School. 

Impact Statement

Our first collegians graduated from college. Trey from Northwest Missouri State; and Cecil from the University of Kansas.

Emmanuel was a freshman at the University of Saint Mary and finished with a 4.0 GPA.

Kahli was a sophomore at the University of Kansas.

10 scholars out of 12 and 2 collegians out of 2 maintained at least a 3.0 GPA. 

8 scholars out of 10 demonstrated satisfactory achievement of at least 4 of their identified On Course for College goals every six months.

In five years, BHGH of KC will have 8 collegians in the workforce in careers and have another 5

scholars in college.

Goals for 2018:

  • Financial Sustainability and Growth. Fund development remains a key focus for BHGH of KC. Increased transformational individual donor relationships on two levels will assist the organization in overcoming long-term financial challenges—re-engage those who have given gifts in the past and inspire a new group of recurring monthly donors. 
  • Technology:  The goals are to:
    • use technology as a platform for connectivity with educational resources and programs that underscore other BHGH of KC academic enrichment activities.
    • use technology to support scholar advancement in academics, college planning, community service and personal development through research and access.
    • provide a cutting-edge learning environment that supports the BHGH of KC mission to help scholars reach their full potential.
    • bring BHGH of KC scholars into alignment with digital upgrades and technological goals of partnering schools.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
I  am honored to serve as president of the BHGH of KC Board of Directors. It is an organization whose mission I wholeheartedly support. Boys come to us with enormous academic promise and are highly motivated to succeed. They are stifled in growth because they have been born into an environment laden with circumstances that threaten their success, such as: the death, illness or incarceration of a parent or parents; lack of academic opportunity; influence of neighborhood crime, gangs and drugs; and/or the devastation of poverty. By providing our boys with a top-notch, private college preparatory education, a warm, nurturing home, and round-the-clock care from talented and dedicated residential counselors, we are changing lives. We are raising boys who will will continue on to college and after graduation become men of valor in their home, workplace and community. I take a great pride in being a part of this initiative. I hope that you, too, will join me in support of BHGH-KC. We receive no government funding; so, it is through support from individuals, corporations and foundations that we will be able to continue to fulfill our mission.
 
Sincerely, 
Dan Hogan

Description

In 2010, Charles E. Basch issued a study from Columbia University expressing the critical relationship between health-related problems, motivation and ability to learn, and indicated that interventions to address those problems can improve education as well as health outcomes. Healthier students are better learners, and educationally relevant health disparities have a direct and negative impact on the educational achievement gap that plagues urban minority youth.

Category Education, General/Other Educational Programs
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), ,
Short-Term Success
  1. Research studies find a significant correlation to the frequency of “sit-down” meals shared in common to positive child and youth outcomes that include: achievement of developmental milestones, language development, reduction of risk behaviors, and academic achievement. The scholars and staff share a “family style” meal together five times per week.
  2. Perceived attachment to high school and participation in extra-curricular activities builds character and is closely associated with academic success. Leadership experience during high school is a strong determinant in college admission and scholarship decisions. Scholars are required to participate in extra-curricular activities, such as sports, the fine arts, clubs and leadership.
  3. There is growing consensus that emotional and social intelligence is a key determinant in the ability of underserved student populations to succeed in college. Emotional wellness program provides a counselor to work with boys twice per month on conflict resolution; issues with family relationships; transitioning from urban core to group living; challenges growing up as a young African American male; anger management.
Long-Term Success

Urban children growing up in poverty are more vulnerable to negative adult outcomes such as poor health, unemployment, poverty, homelessness, and involvement in the criminal justice system (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2009; Crissey, 2009; Leone et al., 2003; National Poverty Center, 2007). For youth known to both systems, the intersection of race, poverty, and inadequate education, among other factors, is likely to adversely affect their educational outcomes, resulting in truancy, poor academic performance, and behavioral problems.

In our community alone, 28% of children live in areas of concentrated poverty. And, poverty breeds all kinds of issues for kids: hunger, homelessness, absenteeism and increased dropout rates, low academic performance, lack of focus, health issues, developmental delays/learning disabilities, and exposure to violence. Our whole-person development approach addresses physical/medical, social, emotional, intellectual, character, life-skills, and service leadership components in a methodical, developmentally appropriate manner over a significant period of time.

Program Success Monitored By

Outcome #1: Studies find a significant correlation to the frequency of shared “sit-down” meals to positive child and youth outcomes, including academic achievement. BHGH of KC scholars and staff engage in “family style” meals together five times per week.

Performance Target: 12 month meal planning with a nutritionist.

Performance Target: Provide the knowledge, attitudes, skills and experiences to promote lifelong healthy eating.

Outcome #3: There is growing consensus that emotional and social intelligence is a key determinant in the ability of underserved student populations to succeed in college.

Performance Target: 26 or more sessions with licensed counselor.

Performance Target: 6 of 12 monthly life skills sessions devoted to topics to improve emotional/social intelligence.

Examples of Program Success

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City emphasizes the importance of health and wellness:

  • Scholars are required to participate in extra-curricular sports (soccer, basketball, football, track and field, wrestling, and weightlifting).
  • They are encouraged to be involved in the fine arts (theatre and dance).
  • Chores at the home include yard work (raking, shoveling snow, and gardening).
  • A home gym provides daily exercise and emphasis on a healthy lifestyle (free weights, elliptical).
  • Pool, air hockey and foosball provide physical activity and social interaction.
  • Scholars eat together; plan meals with house parents; assist with cooking.
  • Menu planning is completed with nutritionist.
  • Healthy snacks are provided between meals (granola, fruit, and vegetables).
  • BHGH of KC partnered with the Kansas City Community Gardens to create a garden so scholars grow fresh vegetables each summer.
  • Emotional wellness program provides counselors who work with boys twice per month on conflict resolution; issues with family relationships; transitioning from urban core to group living; challenges growing up as a young African American male; anger management.
  • Spiritual growth includes such topics as how men treat women, making appropriate lifestyle choices.
Description

Recent studies, including Yes We Can, the Schott Foundation’s 50-State Report on Public Education and Black Males and A Call for Change, report that African American youth are struggling along all points of the academic continuum. The statistics describing African American boys as more likely than peers to be placed in special education classes, labeled mentally retarded, suspended from school, or drop out altogether is disturbing enough.

But, the surprising news, at once puzzling and promising, is that educators actually have tools to reverse this trajectory.

BHGH of KC scholars receive a college preparatory, private school education at a partner school, St. Thomas More Middle School and Rockhurst High School. Scholars are provided study skill support and tutorial assistance through school night study halls. After-school/summer enrichment programs and one-on-one mentoring are essential for success, and these opportunities are provided, some through cooperation with community partners.

Category Education, General/Other Educational Programs
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), ,
Short-Term Success

Outcome One: Increase in academic attitudes, skills, and success that are predictive of successful college completion. 

  • Maintain at least a 3.0 GPA (4.0 scale) or, if lower, increase their GPA by at least .2 each successive semester until they reach a 3.0.
  • Demonstrate satisfactory achievement of at least one of their identified On Course for College goals every six months. Per BHGH policy, one OCC goal is required for each quarterly service plan. 

 Outcome Two: Increase in emotional, social, and character attitudes, behaviors, and skills predictive of post-secondary educational success and, eventually, the transition to mature, productive adulthood. 

  • Demonstrate satisfactory achievement of at least two of their identified life skills goals every six months. 
  • Participate in and complete the requirements for at least two extra-curricular activities or school-related clubs per school year. Most scholars complete more than two activities.

Long-Term Success

One demonstrative measure of success is that each scholar completes a college degree. Along the way, though, there are so many reasons to celebrate: improved test scores, earning a role in the school's musical, positive behaviors, completion of a community service project, increased esteem. Each child's needs are different, and the approach to helping him/her reach individual goals varies.

Program Success Monitored By

The scholars at Boys Hope Girls Hope of KC are held to high standards and are accountable. They are expected to exhibit diligence and determination to studies. At the same time, they are to demonstrate leadership, compassion, and a strong work ethic. Our scholars learn to help tutor other scholars, are eager to assist staff and fellow scholars with chores, work conscientiously during service projects, and have a good rapport with teachers and classmates.

Each scholar is monitored monthly and evaluated quarterly based on an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to ensure outcomes align with goals. Included are:

  • Academic review
  • Residential life review
  • Personal counseling needs and physical assessment
  • Community service and spiritual development progress
  • Family contact and involvement review
Examples of Program Success
  • The scholars collectively have served more that 350 hours of community service.
  • Two collegians are maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Scholars are living out men for others by their work in the community. One collegian is working at a residential treatment facility in Iowa; another is leading his fraternity’s philanthropy event the last two years and raised more than $2,000 for BHGH of KC.
Description

The President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy wrote in its recent Annual Report to the President: "By almost any measure, today's schoolchildren are ill-equipped to understand personal finance and make their way in the modern financial world. Their rising debt and debt problems, along with their poor inclination to save, substantiate what the test scores show. Most students still graduate from high school without any formal classroom education in personal finance." Economic empowerment and financial literacy are skills necessary to ensure and individual has the ability to create and maintain a financially secure future. Statistics show that financial literacy is frequently overlooked in the education of youth.

Short-Term Success

According to recent national foundation for credit counseling and financial literacy survey results, only 34 percent of American parents taught their teenagers how to balance a checkbook. This is particularly apparent in children from low-income families. “Minority youth from low income households whose parents have relatively low levels of educational attainment face multiple barriers to financial inclusion and financial literacy.” (Engaging Marginalized Youth in Financial Literacy Programs/ Ek-Udofia / July 2012)

Short term success will include:
100% scholars attend Financial Literacy sessions and completing required assignments 
Long-Term Success
Financial Literacy curriculum at Boys Hope Girls Hope of Kansas City as a component of On Course for College (OCC) program. In part I, scholars completed the following:
Module 1: Money Management
Manage spending to meet financial goals.
Module 2: Borrowing
Control personal credit and debt.
Module 3: Earning Power
Boost personal earning capability.
Module 4: Investing
Put personal assets to work to build personal wealth.
Module 5: Financial Services
Use financial services in a sensible and wary manner.
Module 6: Insurance
Protect personal property and financial resources.
 
 The focus in Part II is on College Financial Planning as scholars prepare to embark on the journey towards college and financial independence. Subject areas included financial advantages of pursing a higher education; costs of college; financial aid, loans, and debt management. Additionally, each scholar developed a personal budget for their first year in college, projecting out their cost of attendance and expenses and sources of revenue including financial aid and family contributions.
Program Success Monitored By
Staff measures progress through regular staff meetings; developing an overview of the program; and detailing roles and expectations. A staff retreat is held to discuss session scheduling, including scholar expectations and requirements. There are learning outcomes for each of the modules. Performancebased assessments for each lesson includes a rating scale guide to evaluate student performance.
By the conclusion of the program, students will be armed with information and practical tools to achieve their college financial goals in a responsible manner.
Scholars are taught about savings (scholars 15 and older must save 60% of earnings towards educational expenses); boys open a bank account with BHGH to help them manage savings; college financial planning provides background for how much college costs are; how much is saved; how much they’ll need; FAFSA, etc. With the 40% they keep, we expect boys to give to others in need.
Examples of Program Success

8 scholars out of 10 demonstrated satisfactory achievement of at least 4 of their identified On Course for College goals every six months.

2 out of 2 collegians successfully maintained relationships and required contact each semester with a BHGH of KC team member.

10 scholars out of 10 improved one of ten targeted scale areas of the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory.

12 out of 12 scholars completed satisfactory achievement of at least two of their identified On Course for Life goals every six months.

BHGH of KC works closely with partnering schools--Rockhurst High School, Lutheran High School, Lincoln Preparatory Academy and St. Thomas More School.  We also collaborate with other organizations who serve boys in our demographic and an abundance of organizations who offer candidate referrals.
 

Volunteers provide the crucial academic support and personal attention that is at the heart of our mission. They bring their experience as parents to children who may never have experienced parenting. They bring their experience as business professionals to help our offices run more smoothly. They share their expertise, their knowledge, and their time with children who may never have had a caring adult take a personal interest in them.

While it is the primary responsibility of administration and residential staff to build genuine, healthy human relationships with each child, community volunteers bring a wealth of gifts to share. In so doing, they increase the effectiveness of our program.
