Our Mission

We are creating a corps of academically capable, socially conscious and mentally disciplined leaders in the Mississippi Delta

Our Vision

We envision the day when young people growing up in Sunflower County, Mississippi, have access to the same educational opportunities as children anywhere in America.


Our Values

Commitment to LEADership
At the Sunflower County Freedom Project, we believe that education is the seed of freedom. Our students, staff and interns all speak in the language of LEAD: Love, Education, Action and Discipline. Without a challenging, achievement-oriented education, children in the Mississippi Delta will be as powerless in the future as were illiterate sharecroppers in the twentieth century.
