Freedom School

Opportunity Details

Volunteer and Help a child this Summer! 

WHEN | June 14 - July 25, 2023
Pinewood Elementary School

We're almost halfway through with Freedom School 2023! Check out all the amazing things happening across the city on their Facebook and Instagram accounts (and you'll catch a glimpse of Pinewood in there, too!). 

You can find ALL the volunteer opportunities described and listed on this one sign-up genius page.

Please note these important ones!  

  • Harambee Open House - Wednesday, July 12 (8:30-9:30am): not sure what Freedom School is all about? Meet us there for Harambee and to experience it yourself! Our small group will discuss the work of FSP and the issues they're addressing.
  • Family Engagement Night - Thursday, July 13 (5:30-8:00pm): volunteers can help provide a great dinner and/or serve/support the event for families!
  • Finale (at MPBC) - Thursday, July 27 (10:00-1:00pm): help set up before and/or clean up after as we host the final celebration of Pinewood's Freedom School in Heaton Hall!

As always, volunteers as reading buddies are needed throughout July - take 30 minutes of your day to talk with a scholar about the books they're reading and connect with them around a love of learning! 

Volunteer Here

NOTE | Harambee Readers sign up through a different spreadsheet, and those volunteers need to be confirmed by the end of May 2023. It's the best way to start your day! Please reply for more details and available dates.
