Project Lede empowers middle school students to start and run their own school newspapers, both in print and online. Why a newspaper? Why middle school?

Our Programs

Project Lede works with two schools in Stamford and two in Boston. Check out photos from our summer camps and after-school programs.


Using journalism, we hope to engage students at a critical point in their academic and social development. Read about our goals here.
