Freedom School Partners wants to build a lasting and meaningful relationship with you! Together, we will make a strong collective commitment to children that leads to a sustainable change in our community. In summer 2017, Charlotte will serve over 1,200 scholars at 16 locations from June 19- July 27 and we need your help.

Get Connected Now

During the summer for 30 minutes every weekday morning, a community member joins the merriment of songs and cheers to read a story to our scholars. If you are interested in being a guest reader at one of our locations please contact Carolyn Lugo-Allred for more information.

Following are the steps:
•Go to our Volunteer Hub page
• Click Register in the top right corner
• Create a User Name and Password.
• Read and agree to the “Child Protection Policy” (see question #1).
• Under the question “Please list the name of the Freedom School site (or special activity) that is your primary volunteer location” or you can sign up as a “General Volunteer.” In spring 2016, you will be able to log in to sign up for specific activities at specific Freedom School sites.
