Children’s Defense Fund® Freedom School


We are excited to host The CDF Freedom Schools® program at St. John’s Church – The Beloved Community this summer.

If your child or a youth in your life has completed kindergarten – 5th grade, we encourage them to sign up for CDF Freedom School this summer. The program runs weekdays June 19, 2017 – July 28, 2017 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The program is free to attend. Breakfast and lunch are provided.

Parents are required to participate in at least one informational parent meeting during the six-week session, as well as be involved with other activities such as volunteering and chaperoning field trips.

The CDF Freedom Schools program seeks to build strong, literate, and empowered children prepared to make a difference in themselves, their families, communities, nation and world today. The CDF Freedom Schools program boosts student motivation to read, generates more positive attitudes toward learning, increases self-esteem and connects the needs of children and families to the resources of their communities.
