The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Story International seeks to empower and equip Guatemala's most vulnerable through the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
The School of Hope, or Colegio Bilingue Esperanza, is a bilingual school built and owned by Story International. The School of Hope is a private Christian school approved by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education.
The school was built in 2012 with the intention of offering a quality, bilingual education to our kids at Fundación Salvación . Since then, we have grown and are now able to offer our services not only to the kids at the home, but also to low-income families from the local community.
We currently offer grades Pre-K through 9th grade and have plans to expand to the high school level as well. As a completely bilingual school, our staff is made up of both Guatemalans and Americans. Core classes (such as science, history, math, etc.) are taught in Spanish by our Guatemalan staff, while our U.S. staff teaches English language and grammar, P.E., music, bible, art, and service-learning.
