Esperanza Juvenil

Esperanza Juvenil (Boys Hope Girls Hope Guatemala) helps academically motivated children and youth rise above disadvantaged backgrounds and become successful in college and beyond.

Our goal is to develop young people who are physically, emotionally and academically prepared for post-secondary education and a productive life, breaking the cycle of poverty.

Esperanza Juvenil utilizes the following elements to achieve our mission:

  • Academic excellence

  • Service and community engagement

  • Family-like settings to cultivate youth empowerment

  • Long-term and comprehensive programming

  • Faith-based values

  • Voluntary participant commitment


Esperanza Juvenil firmly believes that children have the power to overcome adversity, realize their potential, and help transform our world. Children create these successes when we remove obstacles, support and believe in them, and provide environments and opportunities that build on their strengths.
