What We Do

Freedom School Partners promotes the long-term success of children by preventing summer learning loss through igniting a passion for reading and inspiring a love of learning.

Freedom School Partners fulfills this mission by:

1. Delivering a culturally diverse curriculum that affirms our scholars with engaging literature and exposure to the broader community.

2. Serving families and children who lack access to quality summer enrichment opportunities.

3. Addressing the whole child by supporting their academic, social and emotional needs.

4. Offering a work-force development opportunity for college students to gain professional experience, serve as positive role models and enter the teacher pipeline or social service pipeline.

5. Collaborating with diverse community stakeholders who contribute to and benefit from the partnerships.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted:
Out of an abundance of caution, we made the decision to do a pop-up and virtual model of our summer programming. In doing so, we received a significantly less amount of funding, including grants and partnership funds, which helps fund a Freedom School summer.

For summer 2020, FSP has developed a program to ensure that much needed educational and basic resources will go directly to families. The FSP 2020 R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. (Reading and Enrichment for Scholars Plus Other Needed Supplies and Essentials) Program will occur via pop-up sites at multiple locations this summer and be supplemented by a virtual component. FSP R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. will include music, participation stations with reading, math and enrichment activities, and take-home resources for children and their families.

How You Can Help:
