Free screening of Tomorrow’s Hope (40 minutes long) on Tuesday, September 22 at 6 pm.

Thank you to those who joined this special screening and panel. For more information about the film, contact Tamra Raven,

“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.
