- Development of short, medium and long term goals, vocational guidance, personalized tutoring, emotional, spiritual and academic support.
- Extracurricular activities and opportunities, including a volunteer and social service focus.
- Planning for high school and college, tutoring and mentoring.
- Networking with professionals, students and alumni of the Boys Hope Girls Hope network in Mexico, Guatemala and the USA.
Residential Program for University Students
We house young university students of legal age, providing them with a home, food, academic scholarships, counseling, psychological therapy, and a healthy environment for their personal and professional development.
This provides a dignified space in which our students of legal age can have better access to their institutions, receive our services, live with other students and create support networks for their future.
Online Academy Program
We provide adolescents and young people with different workshops and online activities in order for them to develop skills that allow them to improve their academic achievement and have life skills.
This develops academic and social skills through our workshops in English, mathematics, Spanish, leadership, robotics, psychology, art, and music in order to prevent school dropouts and improve the educational achievement of students.
Collegian and Alumni
We want our collegians to graduate with a university or technical degree and make a difference in their lives, those of their families, and in their communities.
We stick with our collegians and alumni to help them develop a critical sense of family, work, and personal success as they integrate themselves into their community as valued citizens.
Education for Parents
We provide biweekly online sessions to the parents of our scholars, focused on parenting, positive discipline, support, etc.
Through our parental courses, we offer emotional support to families, psychological therapy, and provide various supports derived from their socioeconomic intake.
At Ser y Crecer, we seek to benefit the population that lacks the necessary conditions for a dignified life, providing tools that motivate and guide them in comprehensive training and academic development to be citizens of service to their community.
We have two pathways with which we provide opportunities to adolescents and young people to exercise their right to quality education:
the Academy and the Residence.
The Academy Pathway is an online program in which we offer academic mentoring and advising, so that middle school, high school, and university students to develop skills that allow them to reach their maximum academic potential.
The Residency Pathway provides food, basic services, education, home, access to health services, and clothing to students of legal age.
We have extra activities and supports to help our families to have better practices for accompanying their children. Our School for Parents offers biweekly sessions in which we provide topics focused on positive parenting.
We invite you to know the admission criteria for each of the two pathways here:
My Road is Boys Hope Girls Hope’s innovative online learning experience which consists of a journey of activities, assessments, and benchmarks that ensure scholars are developing academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually in preparation for college, career, and life.
