Opportunity to contribute to Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools Austin – Wildflower’s first quarter of 2024 second offering
On Sunday, Simone, shared information about the CDF Freedom Schools Austin. It is a year-round culturally responsive family support network that culminates in a free six-week literacy and STEAM education program for scholars ages 6-11. It is a program of the Welcome Table, Inc., “a source of abundance for families in East Austin”.
See the information at the end of this item for how to donate to this organization!
Since 2014, almost 400 scholars averaged a 9 month increase in reading level during the summer program. The scholar’s success is promoted with family support, a team of college-aged Servant Leader interns, and professionals in the community who come together to support and celebrate their potential.
CDF Freedom School Austin offers:
• Literacy, STEM, and arts enrichment
• Support or character strengths needed to make good decisions
• Culturally responsive teaching and learning
• A community that believes in them
In addition, the program extends the summer experience with year-round family engagement, family centered events, books, educational and cultural materials, community partnerships and family support.
