THE SPARK of Le Flambeau Launches 14th Year

Le Flambeau Foundation will be launching THE SPARK of Le Flambeau Fall session for the fourteenth year.  The THE SPARK of LF is an online language exchange program focused on extending educational opportunities to bright youth (up to 27 yrs old) in and from Haiti, with English language learning as the foundation. This program provides a path for students to engage and earn their way forward.  The program was created by youth in the U.S. and in Haiti, for the youth.

This Fall 2022 THE SPARK of Le Flambeau session will launch on October 15th, 2022 and will run until end of November 2022.  Featured will be students from Université Notre Dame d’Haiti (Cap-Haïti), and a few other schools in Haiti, with the possibility of volunteer students joining us from a new partnership with a U.S. school – more to come.   Our recent college grad volunteer from past sessions,  Ms. Alexis, is back by popular demand and will be leading as English Grader for the third time.
