St. Luke’s commitment to being an open, inclusive, and anti-racist church is not just something we say- it’s something we do. That’s why we’re hosting and sponsoring our second annual Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School from June 20 through July 28, 2023.
CDF Freedom Schools© are summer programs designed to increase literacy, self-esteem, socio-emotional skills, and a love of learning for children in elementary school. We disrupt the summer learning slide by keeping scholars engaged and stimulated. CDF Freedom Schools© help children discover their potential and greatness, utilizing books and curricula that celebrate the cultures and contributions of people of color. We also employ young-adult teachers who serve as role models and mentors.
