The 2015 edition of Connect 2 Educate Resources Directory is a comprehensive guide to community services for New Orleans youth, ages 0-18. We’ve highlighted 84 free or low-cost community-based programs that are available to children and youth regardless of where they stay or go to school. This guide is built around the Five Promises, a proven framework for understanding what children need in order to reach adult success.


“Read & Be Heard,” NOKP’s Early Childhood Literacy Collaborative is back in session! LEH PRIME TIME, the Louisiana Children’s Museum and the New Orleans Public Library partner to offer 3 months of free early literacy programming to families with children ages 0-5.


New Orleans Kids Partnership is a voluntary collaboration of 40 partner organizations that offer and support direct services to underserved children in New Orleans. The mission of NOKP is to expand access to high quality services for children, youth and families in Greater New Orleans through collective impact.


Through collective impact work, NOKP Working Groups produce collaborative campaigns, events, projects, publications and learning opportunities that lead to improved academic, health and vocational outcomes for children and youth in New Orleans.
