Freedom School

A CHILD WHO READS IS A CHILD WHO SUCCEEDS

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 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.

If you are interested in signing up your child for Freedom School or would like to support this ministry financially, please contact the Neighborhood Center at 419-473-1167 extension 317.
