Freedom School

Our Mission: Through the CDF Freedom Schools model at Wake Forest University, we empower youth to excel and believe in their ability to make a difference in themselves, their families, communities, country and the world with hope, education and action.
What we do: Freedom Schools enhance children's motivation to read and makes them feel good about learning. At the same time, the program connects families to the right resources in their communities. Freedom School students engage in a research-based, multicultural integrated Reading Curriculum that supports them and their families through five essential components: High quality academic enrichment, Parent and family development, Civic engagement and social action, and Intergenerational servant leadership development. Nutrition, health and mental health. Students also receive two nutritious meals and a snack daily, as well as a book each week to build thri home libraries.
