Help Us Reach our Goal to send FIVE Scholars to Freedom School next Summer
Freedom School Partners (FSP) is joining the #GivingTuesday movement on December 3–a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Locally, FSP is joining #GivingTuesdayCLT and SHARE Charlotte– Charlotte’s local response to this global movement. FSP is celebrating Monday, December 2- Friday, December 6.
Last summer, FSP served 1,320 scholars with the support of community partners at 18 sites. More than 85% of scholars gained or maintained in their reading after attending Freedom School. After participating in Freedom School, 94% of parents saw in an increase in their child’s confidence in their reading ability and 87% of parents saw an increase in their child’s love of reading since participating in Freedom School.

“My son, prior to attending Freedom School, was shy and reserved. Since going to Freedom School he has a new sense of confidence and love for reading. I now see him pick up books and make eye contact when speaking to anyone. I’m truly thankful for this experience that he has had with Freedom School.”
“This is my family’s first time at Freedom School this summer and my girls loved every bit of it. The intern leaders were very inspirational and they loved them. They were always excited every day to get to Freedom School and excited when they get home to tell us about how great their day was. Freedom School has really built my two girls socially and academically. Thanks!”
“I have encouraged my daughter to read for years, and not only inform her, but show her as I am an avid reader. It was not until this summer where I have seen her pick up a book and read from beginning to end! Happy Mom!!!”-FSP Parent
