The Shalom Park Freedom School Needs Volunteers Like You!

 

VOLUNTEERING IN THE 2020 SUMMER

* Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic, Shalom Park Freedom School will not be hosting a traditional site this year. *

This was a decision made by Freedom School Partners, not Shalom Park Freedom School. As a result, there will not be any activities on Shalom Park. Freedom School Partners will be operating 11 drive-thru RESPONSE sites throughout Charlotte, where scholars will receive weekly literacy packets, enrichment activities, books, food (from Second Harvest Food Bank), and toiletries.

Freedom School Partners is making volunteer opportunities available this summer.

If you would like to volunteer with Freedom School Partners at the Huntingtowne Farms Community site, please look here.

 

We rely on support from volunteers of all ages to provide our scholars with a summer experience they will never forget.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADULTS (age 18 and older)

Take a look at this list of Volunteer Opportunities to learn about one-time and ongoing opportunities to volunteer. 

Pick the date and desired volunteer activity and then you will be prompted to create a volunteer profile on the Volunteer Hub. All volunteers are required to accept Freedom School Partners’ Child Protection Policy and COVID-19 Guidelines. This is done for the safety and security of our scholars and volunteers. Once the registration process is completed, volunteers can sign up for activities and events! Parents of younger teen volunteers are required to use their volunteer profile when signing up for volunteer opportunities.
