Promoting Greater Success Collaborative
Program Type Description:
Youth Summer Camp and Pantry
The Promoting Greater Success Collaborative is a corp of volunteer retired educators dedicated to ensuring that Central City youth have safe recreational and academic support opportunities that will help them to succeed and graduate from high school, continue to and graduate from college, and to become contributors to New Orleans brighter future. We would love to be able to receive food from your program. All of our students come from surrounding housing projects and will not have money for lunches.
Our summer camp program is built upon pro-bono services, local contributions, and lots of hard work, but it is worth it to see more New Orleans youth be successful. We would also like to do a community food give away each Friday with our students as community workers (helping to distribute the food).
