Founded in 1998 by three Teach for America alumni, the Sunflower County Freedom Project grew and demonstrated remarkable results, gaining the attention and interest of a group of community leaders in Meridian, Mississippi who were searching for opportunities to support and challenge the youth in their city. In 2014, the Meridian Freedom Project opened its doors to middle and high school students from Meridian Public Schools and paved the way for the second expansion site, the Rosedale Freedom Project, founded in 2015.
Founded in 2016, the Freedom Project Network was formed to support the work being done at each Freedom Project site. 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.
The Freedom Project Network works with the Sunflower County Freedom Project, the RosedaleFreedom Project, and the Meridian Freedom Project.
