What’s Happening Now?
The Spoken Word Project is in full effect! With the support of The Ouachita Parish Public Library and Louisiana Delta Community College, Young Voices will be held on Nov. 15, 2015 at LDCC Monroe Campus. The feature poet will be Tro’juan Henderson of Austin, Tx. Any teens age 13-19 wanting to perform should call 318 538-1187 or register online. If you are under 18, you can download the parent form here!
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.
