We believe that every child should have the opportunity to fall in love with books.
Freedom School is one response to ending the cradle-to-prison pipeline. It’s a safe place for children ages 5-14 to strengthen reading skills and experience new opportunities to grow and serve. Monroe Street has offered Freedom School since 2018.
The heart of Freedom School is reading instruction. In addition, young scholars participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) enrichment experiences, outdoor activities, field trips, and community service. Breakfast and lunch are provided each day.
