Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Charter School

Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Charter School’s mission is to prepare culturally diverse pre-school and elementary school students in the District of Columbia to be leaders, scholars and responsible global citizens who are committed to social justice. Our school is a language immersion school and we teach children to think, speak, read, write and learn in two language tracks: English and French or English and Spanish. In a typical week, a service member at EW Stokes might work with classroom teachers at our two campuses to create multi-disciplinary lesson plans that infuse garden and nutrition themes, create a food and gardening newsletter to share with the school community, or lead an after school gardening club with second graders.

FoodCorps DC Metro members join a close-knit cohort serving BIMPOC communities in our nation’s capital. In addition to free museums, a thriving urban agriculture network, and a backyard that includes Rock Creek Park, DC Metro service members have access to DC’s metro and bus system and bike-friendly streets to ease the daily commute.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Previous experience or work with young children would be preferred
  • Because we are a language immersion school some familiarity with French or Spanish would be helpful but not required
