A new annual experience for Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars to explore passion, purpose, and future pathway.

EnvisionU will provide incoming 12th graders an opportunity to develop their sense of belonging in the Boys Hope Girls Hope community, and buy into their future as well-educated, career ready, men and women for others. Scholars will participate in team building and service activities that will develop skills such as communication, problem solving, teamwork, and community, and explore colleges and universities from across the country through a college fair with partner schools and local admission representatives.

How it works:

Each summer, Boys Hope Girls Hope will host the class of rising seniors at EnvisionU. The experience will rotate to different partner schools each year to provide a new and exciting experience for scholars to explore post-secondary pathways. The week will be filled with learning, connecting, and reflecting.

 Participants will have the opportunity to explore their own identities, reflect on their passions, and explore pathways for college and beyond. They will participate in events such as:

  • A college fair with university partners and local admission representatives
  • Workshops covering topics such as financial aid, scholarship search, and writing powerful essays
  • Service in the local community with individual and group reflection
  • Team building and skill development activities
  • Exciting social events

On Campus

The rising seniors stay on a college campus to get a weeklong experience of living, eating meals, enjoying free time and planned schedules, and navigating college life.

Affiliate team members join the Network Headquarters team as chaperones and current Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians and alumni serve as Legacy Leaders who assist a small group of scholars all week.
