CREATING
LEADERS

 Our mission is to motivate young people to become capable and compassionate leaders in their communities. To strengthen, fund and unite our current Freedom Project sites through networking, training, mentoring and financial growth.

 


Freedom Fellows are not 'typical teenagers'. Freedom Fellows are LEADers.


We believe that freedom demands a challenging, relevant education that prepares all citizens to participate actively in our democracy. Educational inequity in Mississippi undercuts our nation’s ideals of equal opportunity, leaving many Mississippians unwilling or unable to be constructive citizens.  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 Freedom Project Network is committed to:

  • Building capacity for each Freedom Project site through coordinated fundraising and staff support.
  • Encouraging and facilitating cooperation among Freedom Project affiliates
  • Strengthening the network with deliberate, thoughtful, and community-supported expansion.

ARTS ENRICHMENT

We believe the arts are a powerful way to share the history of the civil rights movement as well as express ideas for action and change.  We engage our students in the arts through drama, music, visual arts, creative writing, dance, and more.
 

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Before joining the Freedom Project, students and parents must sign a Commitment to LEAD in which they pledge to uphold the four LEAD principles that underlie all Freedom Project activities. These principles apply to the organization’s staff and leadership as well. 

HEALTH TRAINING

Our students participate in a variety of fitness opportunities ranging from Yoga to Taekwondo.  Whether it's capture the flag or circuit training, the goal’s the same: to sweat and have fun!

 

Academic support

"Education is the seed of Freedom" this is what matters to us most, our students receive academic support because our fundamental mission is to empower each student with the skills to to be leaders.
