In partnership with YouthShift, we have created two calendars focused on free or low-cost professional development opportunities, local meetings, community events and online resources available each month for youth workers and youth serving nonprofit staff.


Each month we highlight free or low-cost upcoming webinars across the internet as a quick and convenient way to access helpful knowledge and training. From early childhood education, to community outreach and fundraising, we’re focused on topics that are most relevant to our partners and youth service workers.


The Connect 2 Educate Resources Directory is a comprehensive guide to community services for New Orleans youth, ages 0-18. We’ve highlighted 100+ free or low-cost community and school based programs that are available to children and youth regardless of where they stay or go to school and based around the Five Promises foundation.
