Piedmont Freedom Schools

Piedmont Freedom Schools (PFS) is a summer enrichment program, birthed out of the 1964 Freedom Summer. 

With a strong social justice emphasis, PFS seeks to engage scholars in intentional culturally-relevant curriculum to reduce summer learning slide and empower them to make a difference in their community, nation, and world with hope, action and education.

For the last several years Freedom Schools have existed in Winston-Salem, beginning with an inaugural site at Kimberley Park Elementary. 

Each morning begins with a time called Harambee, or “pull it together,” full of cheers, chants, guest readers, and self-esteem building activities to increase the scholars’ love of education and more importantly, themselves. 


Upcoming Opportunities


February 23rd - Fundraiser at St. Anne’s

March 20th - Friend/Fundraiser

June 27th- Freedom School Summer Kickoff 


June-August there will be various opportunities for Harambee Readers at either site and community volunteers to share their gifts, skills, and talents with the scholars during afternoon activities.
