“Simple Studies Inc is sustainable because education inequity is a systemic and persisting problem.”
When Sarah’s student government board rejected her proposal to build a free online student resource site to help students struggling during the pandemic, she built Simple Studies Inc, an organization that offers free study resources, tutoring, and support for and by students to combat education inequality. The organization has a blog with advice articles, standardized testing resources, AP concept-breakdown videos, and study buddy matching. They also offer college application tips, free tutoring for every common class, a Discord community, and Study Sunday video calls to encourage productivity. During the pandemic, they mobilized over 800 volunteers from 40 states and 40 countries to serve 140,000 website users and 20,000 Discord members with more than 200 study guides and 30 blog articles.
