The CDF Freedom Schools® program means so much to the children, families, and servant leaders in communities across the country. It’s a high-quality academic enrichment opportunity that introduces children—many of whom are Black, Latinx, and Indigenous and are from families with low incomes—to culturally diverse books that reflect their own images.
It’s a safe space for self-exploration, achievement, and dreaming big.
And this year, it’s a space for space! An opportunity for children (we call them our CDF Freedom Schools “scholars”) to discover a freedom to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) possibilities they didn’t even know existed.
