Community Works builds a creative and healthy Greater New Orleans by increasing equitable access to innovative in-school, afterschool, and summer programs that engage young people.

Offer schools and organizations comprehensive enrichment focused afterschool, summer and in-school residencies aligned academically with the school day. Our programs focus on enriching the lives of youth through classes like dance, music, sports, animation, theater, chess, yoga, career visioning, STEAM, and much more.



Everything CW does is rooted in the belief that extended learning opportunities are most impactful when they look and feel different then the regular school day. CW programs keep students constantly engaged in activities that reinforce academic achievement, yet they are having too much fun to even realize it.
