Founded in 2010, EXPO annually promotes courage and character among youth.   

Over 70 children annually exhibit more than 500 projects in 31 project categories at EXPO Esperanza. EXPO builds leadership and courage among the participants as they conquer their fears of handling a large animal, getting up on stage in front of an audience, and bringing their art or cooking creation to an expert judge for critique. 

EXPO is not just an event, but a summer-long activity. Participants are involved in classes, training, practicing, community service, and animal husbandry throughout the entire summer preparing for EXPO. 

The mission of EXPO Esperanza is to develop leadership, responsibility, and technical skills in today’s youth through experiential learning programs that encourage proactive involvement at community and personal levels.
