Friends of Simpson Street Free Press are individuals who make contributions to our programs. Simpson Street Free Press is a nationally recognized after-school academic program. Our student reporters come from all over Dane County and range from as young as third grade through high school. Our students publish on multiple media platforms, and produce five separate publications. Through publishing of newspaper content, SSFP students develop practical academic skills and 21st century job skills. Our young writing staff influence peers in very positive ways. They send positive messages of youth achievement, academic success and community service. Support from friends of SSFP is vital to their success.
