Every child has the potential to succeed.
Freedom School helps provide that opportunity.

Championing the cause to defeat summer learning loss and giving every child an opportunity to succeed is the very foundation of Nia Cultural Center. Our scholars participate in an engaging literacy and character building program offering them valuable educational tools and life skills that help them grow in the classroom, now and beyond.

Our valued scholars participate in a meaningful six-week program based on 3 life-enhancing components: literacy skills that ignite their passion for reading; character strengths needed to make good decisions; and connection to a broader community that believes in them.
