Ways to Get Involved This Month

Sponsoring a student this month is an extremely impactful way to make a difference, but if sponsoring isn’t for you (or if you’re already a sponsor) there are other great ways to get involved and to celebrate Sponsorpalooza and Hispanic Heritage Month.

What is Sponsorpalooza?

Started in 2016, Sponsorpalooza is a campaign from September 15-October 15, dedicated to honoring those who already sponsor and to finding new sponsors to BE THE HOPE! 

Students in Guatemala are starting to return to classrooms after two years of long-distance learning. This is a new and challenging transition—especially for our younger students as many of them have never stepped foot in a classroom. Pre-pandemic, 2 in 10 students graduated high school. It’s likely less now as students faced challenges that led to decreased motivation. Our students need your support more than ever so they can strive for a better life through education.

 There is hope. Sponsors and supporters give HOPE to students in need and motivate them to keep learning as they embark on their educational journey.

It is Common Hope’s goal to connect students directly with a sponsor. When you become a sponsor, you change lives. Not only by providing financial support for tuition, books, uniforms, and school supplies but more importantly, by providing motivation and hope on their path to end the cycle of poverty. 

As a Sponsor, you will connect with a student through letter writing and bi-annual updates. If you travel to Guatemala, we’d love to connect you with your student! Sponsoring a Common Hope student gives you the opportunity to see them grow and witness their success firsthand.
