Big League CDF Freedom School
Women's League Child Development Center
In the summer of 2016, after many years of hosting its own Big League K-5th grade summer program, Women’s League decided to partner with the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) to provide the Hartford community with a Freedom School Program. The Big League CDF Freedom School program serves 50 scholars (students) and their families for 6 weeks during the summer. We employ college students as Servant Leader Interns (teachers) to work endlessly with our scholars. A primary focus of the Big League CDF Freedom School program is to help scholars build “a love of reading” through culturally relevant books that represent the diversity of their experiences. We provide families with information and tools to navigate their scholars’ school experiences. We help empower both scholars and families to make differences in themselves, their families, their communities, the country, the world, and with hope, education and action.
2017 Big League Freedom School Summer Operation is July 10th – August 18th.
