THE SPARK of LF Launches Spring Session – 15th Year

Le Flambeau Foundation launched THE SPARK of Le Flambeau Spring session on February 18th, 2023; entering the fifteenth year of the program.  The THE SPARK of LF is an online English discussion program focused on extending educational opportunities to bright youth (up to 27 yrs old) in and from Haiti.  The program provides a path for students to engage and earn their way forward – a number of past participants earned scholarships to college or shorter-term upskilling programs (eg. tech. etc.).

This Spring 2023 THE SPARK of Le Flambeau session will run for six weeks from February 18th to until April 1, 2023.   Our volunteer Ms. Alexis is back by popular demand and will be leading the session as English Grader for the fourth time.
