Literacy for Freedom

We are focused on creating empowering and supportive communities for Black boys in Minnesota, where they feel confident in achieving all their hopes and dreams.

Improving literacy outcomes

Literacy for Freedom fosters a love of reading and writing among our scholars.

Establishing Black Identity & models

Our enrolled students are exposed to models of positive Black masculinity.

Boost high school graduation rates

From grades 5-12, we give scholars the tools and support they need to graduate high school and beyond.

Our Vision

Through our after-school program, Literacy for Freedom is building a future in which young Black Boys in Minnesota are free to be their authentic selves, communicate and be understood in the world, explore postsecondary opportunities, and mature into thoughtful leaders in their communities.
