Go! Team: My Road Coach - Boys Hope Girls Hope Cincinnati

Activities will focus on academic preparation, college counseling, co-curricular learning and the development of ongoing opportunities for scholars to better understand cultural diversity through service-learning projects. Additional resources will include boosting parental involvement in scholar activities, and educating and encouraging community collaboration. Members specialize in one of 4 areas that include: Community Resource Coordination, Portfolio Coordination, Academic Coordination and College/Career Exploration.
