The NOLA Go! Youth Smartcard will provide a single access point for at-risk youth ages 14-18+ to connect with a citywide network of free transportation and a coordinated system of services, resources and opportunities that have been proven to lead to positive youth outcomes, including higher attendance, lower dropout rates, better academic performance and improved self-esteem.


NOKP is excited to endorse and support the YouthShift Movement to realize a shared vision for New Orleans children and youth. “A Call for Connection” documents the data we collected and the process we employed to create a community vision for children and youth in New Orleans. It outlines an approach and concrete action steps to make this vision a reality.


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.

Youth Smartcard and a comprehensive system of professional development opportunities for youth serving organizations. Our dashboard documents the goals and outcomes for each project that we are working on.
