Programs and Campaigns
The CDF Freedom Schools® program provides summer and after-school enrichment that help children and youth fall in love with reading, boosts self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning.
Through the CDF Freedom Schools program, we work with sponsor partners to forge a new vision for educating and working with children. We engage youth, parents, young adults, caring community leaders, and credible organizations to create a supportive and nurturing world that sets high expectations for all children, strengthens their sense of self-worth, and affirms that they are loved and valued by caring adults.
Since 1995, more than 100,000 children in grades pre K-12 have had the CDF Freedom Schools experience, and over 13,000 college students and recent graduates have participated as servant leader interns, many going on to become teachers, principals and professors. Learn more »
