WCPC CDF Freedom Schools

WCPC partners with the Children’s Defense Fund to sponsor full-day summer programs and 5-day-a-week after school Freedom Schools®. Rooted in Civil Rights history and the legacy of the grassroots Freedom Schools in Mississippi, this curriculum encourages young scholars to become knowledgeable of and civically engaged in the world through stories and projects which reflect their own lives. Daily Harambee! sessions ensure that participants promote healthy community building in an interactive, affirming, and culturally relevant environment.
