IndyKids : A Free Paper For Free Kids

IndyKids is a free newspaper, website and teaching tool that aims to inform children on current news and world events from a progressive perspective and to inspire a passion for social justice and learning. It is geared toward kids in grades 4 to 7. IndyKids produces content monthly during the school year (September through May) with five print editions and four online editions.

IndyKids currently produces 10,000 copies of every print issue – and reaches kids in 36 states across the USA through nearly 200 classroom and individual subscriptions. IndyKids believes that it is the people, through grassroots organizations and movement-building, who make social change. IndyKids aims to engage young kids to understand that they can form their own opinions and become part of the larger movement for justice and peace.

IndyKids was formed in June 2005, with the help of the New York City Independent Media Center, by a group of independent journalists, students, parents, teachers and activists. They recognized the need for progressive current events news to be presented in a way that would interest and engage young kids.
