This week, thousands of college students, teachers and probation officers are gathering at CDF Haley Farm and the Knoxville Convention Center in Tennessee to gear of for the 2017 rollout of CDF Freedom Schools. New and returning servant leader interns and site coordinators from across the country are participating in the intense Ella Baker Child Policy Training Institute.

Over the course of a week, participants will engage in a wide array of workshops and trainings around the Integrated Reading Curriculum, a proven education model that exposes children to books, images, ideas and activities relevant to who they are. Attendees will also be inspired by speeches and discussions with some of the most influential change-makers of our time. Following the training, these young leaders will be dispersed to their communities where they will be fully prepared to build strong, literate and empowered children.
