The mission of Anna’s Place NOLA (formerly Anna's Arts for Kids) is to promote healing and wholeness of body, mind and spirit in the Treme/7th Ward and Greater New Orleans community by offering academic, cultural, and arts enrichment; holistic health care; and healthy lifestyle education. The vision of Anna's Place is that it is a place of peace where children realize their potential and families and the community are nurtured so that poverty and violence no long make their home among us.
WHAT YOU DO
After-School Program: weekly shifts on Mondays, Tuesdays and/or Thursdays to assist with homework and classes such as project learning, nutrition/health/gardening, note reading, choir, etc.
Saturday Arts Program: weekly shifts on Saturdays to assist with classes such as visual arts, health, nutrition, environment, dance, finance, note reading, physical activity, choir, music, etc.
Students serving at Anna's must sign up for and attend 10 volunteer shifts (one shift per week). Therefore, students may have to serve more hours than their course requires.
WHAT YOU LEARN
Service learners working with the children's programs can expect to receive hands-on experience in child education. They will also learn about issues of poverty and its effect on children and the resourcefulness of children in overcoming the challenges that life presents, and what it means to be a role model for youth who aspire to go to college.
