PressFriends was formed in 2008 by kids for kids. PressFriends was started by students who had started their own elementary school newspaper and wanted to share what they had learned with kids from underserved areas.  They set up a newspaper club in the afterschool program of a Title I elementary school, and today, PressFriends is still working with that Title I elementary school but also with another five other Title I elementary schools, three Boys & Girls Clubs, a local public library and a local public aquarium. PressFriends holds 100+ mentoring sessions a year and mentors 500 underserved youth each year.

During the summer, PressFriends runs its specialty programs that combine a special interest with writing.  PressFriends student board members have created, designed, and run TheatreFriends, STEMFriends, SportsFriends, DanceFriends, ArtFriends, MusicFriends and EcoFriends.
