Fivey Magazine

@ 12:40 pm

One of the by-products of the kids’ participation in Smart Partners has been an increase in their creative activity. We found that they were suddenly brimming with stories, poems, drawings, etc. These were collected and given shape in 1999 as the first ever magazine of The 52nd Street Project, Fivey (named after the cheerier half of our mascot duo Fivey and Twoey). Since the first issue, the magazine has become a favorite activity of the Smart Partner kids and adults alike.

The latest issue, published in June of 2016, features a special section drawn from our latest New Platforms program: Storytelling. In the program, spearheaded by Program Director Garrett Kim, the kids told their stories live on stage. We think they work pretty well in print, too!

The greatest result of Fivey has been the creative outlet afforded to the kids. The published magazine is a clear source of pride for them, drawing submissions from kids who had previously expressed an aversion to reading and writing.
