Description

Low income children are susceptible to falling two to three years behind in reading in large part because of disengaged and unsupervised time during the summer months - the largest reason for the achievement gap between low and high income children. Freedom School Partners helps to close that gap by providing a unique six-week summer program that unlocks the long-term potential of children by igniting their passion for reading and learning.

Freedom Schools are taught by a diverse group of enthusiastic, rigorously trained college students who serve as positive role models. Freedom Schools are unlike other summer programs because they give children resources needed to develop their potential – literacy skills, character strengths and a community that believes in them.
