July 17th – July 20th will be summer staff wrap-up at the Garfield Heights campus.
The Boys Hope Girls Hope Academy provides academically motivated middle school “Hope Prep” and high school “College Road” students enrolled in under-resourced schools an opportunity to challenge themselves through academic and personal enrichment. Hope Prep scholars attend weekly meetings throughout the school year, a few Saturday sessions a year, and attend our annual five-week summer session at John Carroll University. Hope Prep allows young people the opportunity to build confidence and develop higher-level thinking by way of innovative programming, activities, character development work, and field trips. Over the course of three years, Hope Prep individualizes instruction and fosters development of the whole child through careful collaboration with schools, parents, and Hope Prep staff.
The Boys Hope Girls Hope Teaching Fellow position is an especially valuable opportunity for students who are planning careers in education, psychology, nonprofit organizations or social services. You will have hands on opportunities to create and implement lessons, build strong relationships with students, and learn best practices that will serve as transferrable skills in countless professional, educational and nonprofit settings.
Ideal candidates are rising juniors, rising seniors and graduate level students and who are majoring in education, psychology, social work or other fields related to the development of young people.

Responsibilities include implementing lessons, leading an enrichment course, transporting Scholars, and attending field trips with the Scholars. This opportunity requires a commitment of approximately 40 hours each week for seven weeks and includes a $1500 – $2400 stipend for the summer program depending on the transportation commitment.
