Our Goal is to Equip 100 Haitian Teachers with the Tools and Training
Necessary to Enrich and Guide Their Students – Haiti’s Greatest Resource.

How We Help

Teach Haiti is a teacher training conference being held from August 2nd through 7th, 2015 in Port Au Prince, Haiti.

La Grange Christian Assembly is partnering with Latin American Child Care (LACC) to send a team of eight American teachers to Haiti to lead training sessions and workshops for the teachers in Haiti.

LACC operates 50 schools in Haiti to provide education, uniforms, and fundamental medical attention.  Teach Haiti’s aim is to leverage the volunteer help of American educators to provide further training to Haitian teachers using proven lesson plans from American classrooms.

Teach Haiti 2015

The Teach Haiti conference is comprised of subject-specific teacher training seminars and lesson planning.

Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, located only 700 miles from the coast of Florida.  We ask you to help us “Love Our Neighbor.

Conference Details

Two Days of Intense Hands-on Training of Over 100 Haitian Teachers

Organizers arrive in Port Au Prince on Sunday, get settled into their accommodations, and adjust to the vastly different Caribbean nation. We ,tour the conference site on Monday, and organize the conference logistics, Tuesday morning the teachers arrive, sometimes by foot, and often exhausted.

The conference begins in an assembly with introductions and distributing class t-shirts. The teachers are separated into groups according to their grade level. Each group is led through a series of workshops by subject-specific Teach Haiti instructors. After a provided lunch and afternoon workshops, the day ends with a Q&A session.

Day two begins with a different cycle of workshops, followed by lunch, and then an opportunity for one-on-one feedback between instructor and Haitian teachers. The second and final day concludes with a short prayer, blessing the teachers for the new school year.

The intense schedule is necessary because most of the teachers are mothers and fathers whose immediate responsibilities inhibit them from spending time away from home.
