ABOUT THE AGENCY 
Boys Hope Girls Hope New Orleans is an academic-driven home for children in need.  We provide year round residential services, access to private college-preparatory schools, college-educated live-in staff, and the opportunity to pursue their dream of college graduation and personal success.

WHAT YOU DO
Service learning students will be tutoring our middle and high school students and working with the staff to further develop each child's education foundation.

WHAT YOU LEARN
Students can share a love of learning with our children and help them become life-long learners. Students can also learn effective tutoring and teaching strategies, which can strengthen their knowledge of the specific subjects in which our students need help.  Students will also discover their ability to impact a middle or high school student's future by serving as an education role model and mentor.
