Become a Freedom School reading buddy at QC Family Tree at St. John’s Baptist Church during this City Wide One Great Day of D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read). Freedom School Partners needs one buddy for every scholar to spend an hour sharing books and enjoying time with a scholar. It is a wonderful opportunity to share your love of reading. This specific D.E.A.R event opportunity is offered at QC Family Tree at St. John’s Baptist Church; there are other Charlotte locations available as well. Age restriction: Adults and high school students - 10th grade or older, please. Park in the main parking lot behind the Church on Lamar and 5th Street. Enter the "Main Entrance" door near the church gym. Prior to the event date, the event host will send you links to register for Freedom School's VolunteerHub portal and Child Protection Policy agreement; these need to be in place prior to volunteering. Please contact the host at the email provided with any questions!
