“Tomorrow’s Hope” brings us into the journey of passionate educators and tenacious kids and their families on the south side of Chicago, determined to carve out the future – despite a sea of incredible challenges.
We follow three present-day high school seniors who had attended a remarkable preschool in its first-ever class. We explore the lingering effects of early childhood education as these kids navigate their way through foreboding circumstances. Illuminating the contrast of promises kept against a pervasive backdrop of promises broken, “Tomorrow’s Hope” celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.
Recently added – Mayor Lightfoot provides an introduction to the documentary, describing it as a “moving film” that addresses “vital challenges.”
“Tomorrow’s Hope” was produced by The Saul Zaentz Charitable Foundation.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Cynthia D. Jackson, Executive Director of Educare Learning Network and Senior VP, The Ounce and representatives from the Central Florida K-Ready Program.
