2020 Freedom School Volunteer Opportunities

Freedom School is a six-week summer program led by college interns that combats summer learning loss by providing a unique program that unlocks the long-term potential of children in grades K-8 with limited means by igniting their passion for reading and learning. With a focus on literacy, character education, and community involvement, Christ Church hosts a Freedom School site at Rama Road Elementary School for 60 scholars from K-6 grades. There are so many fun ways to get involved we hope you will be a part of this fun, transformational, and joyful program.

The Great Day of D.E.A.R. is an opportunity to share your love of reading with our Rama Road Freedom School community!
