Make a difference! Apply to be a Freedom Schools Summer Fellow.

Freedom Schools is a nationally renowned summer education enrichment program founded by civil rights leader Dr. Marian Wright Edelman, who is president of the Children’s Defense Fund. The Children’s Defense Funds’ Freedom Schools, as it’s formally known, is a national literacy enrichment program inspired by the 1964 Freedom Summer, the historic civil rights effort that led voter registration drives and education in Mississippi. The purpose is to nurture children’s love of reading and improve their proficiency in it while connecting to their culture, having fun, and participating in community service and social action.

A Service Leader Intern (SLI) serves as a classroom teacher for a maximum of 10 scholars in a Freedom School literacy based summer enrichment program. The SLI helps to serve breakfast and lunch, leads a literacy rich curriculum during the morning, and leads/chaperones activities in the afternoon. This year’s summer leadership and literacy enrichment program is from 6/24 - 8/2 (in Los Angeles).
