Each June Worldfund hosts a celebratory Education Leadership Award Dinner. The purpose of the Education Leadership Award is to recognize a corporation or individual that has demonstrated a strong commitment to education in Latin America as a key driver of economic and social change. Worldfund traditionally honors education leaders from both the United States and Latin America. The bilateral award underscores the point that corporations throughout the Americas have a common vested interest and responsibility to improve education in the hemisphere.
