Freedom LEADership Academy
This year, Freedom Within Walls launched its first “Freedom Enrichment Program” through the Freedom LEADership Program in partnership with Lead Academy in Greenville, South Carolina serving 100 students. The program provides free extended academic programming and enrichment every day after school as well as a free summer camp. In order to provide holistic, wrap-around services, this program includes mandatory parental involvement for parents and guardians in an effort to address non academic barriers in the lives of disadvantaged families thereby also impacting the home environment of each student. Students and families are provided programming encompassing character building, development and mentoring focusing on mindfulness, creating and implementing successful thought patterns, goal setting, intentional decision making, healthy relationships, building positive affirmations, financial literacy, STEM programming, music and arts, fitness, nutrition, trades and entrepreneurship and much more. Stay tuned as we work to open additional “Freedom Enrichment Programs” in our service areas.
