Career Education

Make a child-friendly presentation about your job, business or profession. We suggest you discuss how you became interested in the area, what sort of education or experience it takes to get there and an example of what a typical day is like - all valuable bits of information. Pictures of the work space, tools of the trade or samples of the work produced, allows children to get a better understanding of what you are talking about.

Demonstration

Such as an artist, craftsman or hobby - Present an enrichment experience (When Home Depot visited Freedom School in 2009, volunteers demonstrated how to put together a bird house and helped scholars do the same).

Sponsor a Lesson

Freedom School scholars take occasional lesson trips during the program and would appreciate help with the cost of admission or transportation through tickets, reduced fees or cash contributions specifically for this purpose. Examples include museums, sports events, festivals, tours or other opportunities.

Provide a Snack

Scholars receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day.  A contribution of a nutritious snack item or sponsorship of a day's snack is just $15.00 a day.
