About the Foundation

Since 1998, the Hispanic Youth Foundation of Northern Virginia (HYF of NOVA) has dedicated its financial resources to helping Hispanic students achieve their full potential by developing and implementing creative education solutions to overcome poor academic motivation, cultural isolation and other barriers. In 2007, the HYF Board of Directors decided to exclusively focus their financial resources on the Victoria D. de Sanchez Northern Virginia Teacher of the Year Award as a way of recognizing and encouraging teachers who have demonstrated exemplary results in working with Hispanic students in Northern Virginia.

Due to Covid19, the Hispanic Youth Foundation of Northern Virginia is not accepting applications for the Teacher of the Year Award in 2020. Please check back in early 2021 for more information.
