A youth education program designed to promote academic achievement.


Simpson street free press (ssfp) delivers high-quality, core subject academic instruction in after-school settings. Students ages 8-18 write and publish 5 separate youth newspapers. Experienced volunteers provide robust forms of assistance, supervising the young writers enrolled in various ssfp programs. Ssfp also operates a network of student book clubs. Our goals are to foster youth literacy and spark student achievement. The ssfp formula accomplishes multiple outcomes. Central to ssfp pedagogy is across the curriculum instructional practices. Lesson plans are expertly designed to support in-school learning. Students encounter predictable connections to the school day. Student writers conduct research, use technology, write and read extensively. They learn transferable academic strategies. They acquire practical workplace skills. School grades and attendance are measured. Ssfp students participate in civic discourse and influence their peers. During 2014, ssfp provided academic support to over 250 students.
