“I was lucky enough to be a read aloud guest at a local Freedom School site and had the best most inspired time. The staff was exceptional at motivating kids, moving them from activity to activity, and instilling a love of reading at a young age. And the Kids were awesome. They were excited to be at Freedom Schools and excited to listen to the book I was reading. Can’t recommend this program enough!”

“I am a parent and supporter of the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools program. My child attended the summer program for many years. She loved the energy, the college interns, the enrichment, and THE BOOKS! I saw her love of reading improve and her confidence improve. The program is magnetic and I love it! We look forward to each summer because of the CDF Freedom Schools Programs! We still have the books she got to bring home and keep, each week of the program.”

“CDF does amazing work in the fight to end injustices toward our nation’s children. They have built the Arc (literally and figuratively) for transporting our children into a society that honors their innocence, and believes in their future. They teach all who are willing to mobilize because the change begins with us.”
