Join us in our mission to catalyze youth-led social change.
Rooted in the long legacy of liberatory education, Chicago Freedom School (CFS) provides training and education for young people and adult allies to create a just world.
In 2004 a group of youth and allied adults came together to ask “what is needed in Chicago to support youth activism?” Three years later, the Chicago Freedom School opened its doors as the first freedom school of its kind in the midwest. Now, 15 years later, CFS has been a hub for community-building, learning, and action for thousands of youth and allied adults working to create a world free from oppression.
Join us this year as we celebrate our 15th anniversary!
