What’s Happening Now?
Thanks to our fundraising team led by Peggy Deal, the fall series of The Spoken Word Project is in full effect! Workshops will be held at the Ouachita Parish Public Library, Main Branch and Ollie Burns Branch. SLAM 101 workshops are open to all teens. Young Voices will be held on November 15, 2014 and is also open to all poets, songwriters, and rappers age 13-19. Click here for more information or to Register online.
With the strong support of the community, the garden at Barkdull Faulk Elementary School is ready for planting. This project empowers youth and the community by teaching where food comes from, practical math skills, basic business principles, the importance of stewardship, environmental sustainability, and life skills. All crops will go to students’ homes along with a garden starter kit. To find out more, volunteer, or contribute to the cause, please Contact Us.
2014 Great Achievements!!
A huge thanks to everyone who helped out this year. We want to especially commend the Sole Sister Event Coordinator, Kimberly Williams and her team of wonderful ladies who worked many hours to make this event a great success!
A round of applause to all the teens who performed at this spring’s Young Voices Showcase. It takes so much courage to tell your own story in such a genuine and creative way. Endless gratitude to Team Slam New Orleans for the inspiration, energy, and encouragement they brought to the stage and our city.
