SWS Youth Behind the Scenes at 106 & Park

SWS youth are always busy learning about business and how different businesses work behind the scenes. We took a trip to visit a popular TV program 106 & Park to learn about what actually happens behind the scenes at this Popular show.

Providing Discounted Furniture for Students

July 2010

SWS sent a group of volunteers, students hailing from various universities and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, to move furniture that was donated by The Home Depot to our organization, and will be sold at a grossly reduced price to students. The proceeds from these sales will be used to fund opportunities for the youth in the surronding community.

Free SAT Prep Classes

April/ May 2010

SWS, in conjunction with the Princeton Review, provided students with free SAT prep classes. Our goal is to provide individuals with opportunities that they may not have had due to disparities, and/ or lack of information.

April/ May 2010

The Simuel Whitfield Simmons Organization donated over 200 books to the Leap Academy, and made a special visit to read to the children. It was such a rewarding visit.
