Become Part of the Tribe.
At the Welcoming Project, we engage system-involved youth (Fellows), who are returning to the New Orleans community from incarceration, by providing each one with a tribe of dedicated and supportive adult volunteers, connecting them to paid internships or work opportunities in fields they are interested in, and offering guidance to help them succeed in school. The Welcoming Project leverages the power of the community to elevate youth by helping them to find a path forward, develop a passion, and find a reason to hope and aspire.
There are several ways you can become involved with the Welcoming Project! Please click on the buttons below to learn more:
