Growing LEADers in Mississippi.

Our Mission

We believe that a free democracy demands a challenging, relevant education that prepares all citizens to participate actively in society. Educational inequity in Mississippi undercuts our nation’s ideals of equal opportunity.  To address and help alleviate this inequality, the Freedom Project Network supports individual Freedom Project sites that provide educational enrichment, leadership development, and college preparation programming for youth in Mississippi. The mission of the Freedom Project Network is to strengthen, fund, and unite our current Freedom Project sites, serving the communities of Sunflower County, Meridian, and Rosedale, Mississippi.


Our Partners


Drawing inspiration from the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer and Civil Rights history, the Freedom Project Network partners are working towards educational equity by providing enriching and meaningful programming to students who face significant obstacles on the road to college.
