The CDF Freedom Schools® program provides summer and after-school enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increases their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning.
CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT USING A MODEL CURRICULUM THAT SUPPORTS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AROUND FIVE ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS:
The CDF Freedom Schools® model incorporates the totality of the Children's Defense Fund's mission by fostering environments that support children and young adults to excel and believe in their ability to make a difference in themselves and in their families, schools, communities, nation, and world. College age young adults are trained as servant leader interns to deliver the integrated reading curriculum (IRC) and adults are trained as site coordinators and project directors to provide supervision and administrative oversight.
