THE SPARK of LF Launches Spring 2024 Class – 15th Year

Le Flambeau Foundation launched THE SPARK of Le Flambeau Spring 2024 session on February 24th, 2024; entering the fifteenth year (since 2009) 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 was developed by youth and provides a path for students to engage and earn their way forward – a number of past participants earned scholarships to college and/or shorter-term upskilling programs (eg. tech. etc.).

This Spring 2024 THE SPARK of Le Flambeau class session will run for five weeks from February 24th to March 30, 2024, and is one of our larger classes over the recent years.   Our volunteer Ms. Alexis is back by popular demand and will be leading the session as English Grader for the fifth time.

Meet Our Class English Grader

English Grader Alexis Floyd has been recognized by the Le Flambeau Foundation as an exceptional volunteer, for both her selfless commitment to helping the youth in Haiti and her commitment to excellence in identifying and implementing innovative practices for engaged learning.  Alexis is a native English speaker and proud African-American, bringing a wealth of cultural insight to her role as a grader. Her diverse interests in international music, languages, and travel enrich her approach.

Continuously learning about Haiti and its people, she’s honored to empower individuals and foster meaningful connections globally through her support of THE SPARK of Le Flambeau.

Changing the Situation.

Le Flambeau Foundation is pleased to be launching this new class.  Learning the English language can serve as a tremendous asset and driver for elevation.  This semester’s class attracted participating youth located throughout Haiti with most coming from the North of the country, specifically the Cap-Haïtien region. The top participants who complete the session will each receive a 2-year English learning Babbel app, resulting from the Foundation’s partnership with Babbel, and they will also receive Le Flambeau Foundation achievement certificates.  The grand winner  “THE SPARK” of Le Flambeau will receive a Samsung tablet along with an achievement certificate and  elevated access to  educational and upskilling opportunities.   Le Flambeau Foundation Executive Director, Ms. S. Colas-Gervais quoted the “Aprann Anglè. Chanje Sitiyasyon.”…(Learn English.  Change the Situation).  An exciting, rewarding, and change-making session is ahead.  The future is bright!
