Nearly $60,000 raised! Thank you!
Thank you to all those who walked the Extra Mile for students in Guatemala.

Why We Walk
Two years of distance learning has had an immense impact on learning for students of all ages, in particular younger students and those experiencing poverty. Distance learning is challenging in itself, but even more so if there isn’t adequate access to technology and resources to help with homework questions. Your Walk For Hope raises funds that provide students with access to academic support during these challenging times.
Walk to Provide Tutoring
$100 funds one week of tutoring. In this time of distance learning, it’s more important than ever that students have access to academic support. Common Hope’s staff offers homework help and tutoring to students via Zoom, WhatsApp, and in-person by appointment.
Walk to Support Teachers
$500 supports a New Hope teacher with distance learning resources. Distance learning looks much different than traditional in-classroom learning. Teachers at Common Hope’s New Hope School have pivoted to go above and beyond to provide support to keep kids learning.
Walk to Keep Kids Learning
$1,152 funds an entire year of programming to one Common Hope student including homework help, tutoring, distance learning tools, health care services, and much more. Help ensure students receive the support they need to overcome all of life’s challenges.
