Freedom Field Is Located at the Rock River Water  Reclamation Campus in Rockford Illinois



Our focus is on Economic Development, Environmental Technology Education, and regionally aligned jobs training in partnerships with RVC and others

Formed in 2009, it started operations in June 2010.

Data shows that that connecting to a business thru internships or projects dramatically increases the chances of landing a job and the chances that the talent will remain in the community.
