Hope for Literacy is an initiative of Hope for Tomorrow! Hope for Literacy was started in order to offer support to the teachers of nearly 60 pre-school classrooms across Guatemala City. As a part of this initiative, HFL offers teachers on-going professional development support in the form of annual professional development conferences, and monthly book-specific professional development materials.
This year we are proud to announce that our Annual Professional Development Conference will be attended by 200+ teachers from our current cohort and our next cohort of teachers. More than simply a larger audience, we are excited to bring even more expertise to this year's conference.
