We are fundraising to support the students and families of the Rafael Hernández School
The Friends of the Hernández is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit partner of the Rafael Hernández Dual Language School in the Egleston Square neighborhood of Boston. We support and advocate for the Hernández and its surrounding community. In collaboration with school staff, families and partners, we promote quality dual language education, provide enriching After School programming, and increase access to the arts. We undertake these efforts motivated by our vision for a socially just and equitable education for our children and all children in Boston.
Currently we are raising funds for general Hernández support, as well as the following specific programs:
- Arts Education
- After School Program and Scholarships
- Blanca Burgos Literacy Fund
- Primeras Maestras Program, training parents as dual language educators
- Adult Education Programs
- Family Supports, supporting the health and wellness of students and families, e.g. Donation Center, food distribution, etc.
- New library
We thank you for your generous support of the students and families of the Hernández. With your help, we can create the school all our students deserve!
