Four nights a week JCU students travel to Garfield Heights to shape the future; both for themselves and an aspiring group of young people. They spend those evenings working with them to support their academic endeavors.
24 JCU students are taking part in a service learning opportunity through the Center for Service-Learning and Social Action (CSSA) with Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) of Northeast Ohio. Throughout the semester these tutoring sessions develop relationships benefitting both the tutors and the BHGH students, astutely referred to as Scholars.
The Executive Director of Boys Hope Girls Hope, Tim Grady agrees, “The whole experience of our program is based on relationships.” The bond between BHGH and JCU students has been growing for decades, Grady says he’s grateful for the long-term commitment.
