Anna's Place NOLA

We promote healing and wholeness of body, mind and spirit through academic, cultural, and arts enrichment; holistic health care; and healthy lifestyle education. Our vision is that we are a place of peace where children realize their potential and families/community are nurtured so that poverty and violence no long make their home among us.


After-School Program: After-school Program: weekly shifts on Mondays, Tuesdays and/or Thursdays to assist in monitoring kids and with homework, classes and fieldtrips.

Saturday Arts Program: Saturday Program: weekly shifts to assist with monitoring kids and classes such as art, note reading, dance, choir, PE, health/nutrition.

NOTE: Students serving at Anna's Place must commit to 10 shifts (one per week). Shifts range from 2 1/2 - 3 hours each. Therefore, students may need to serve more hours than their course requires in order to receive full credit.


Service learners working with the children's programs can expect to have hands-on experience working with children. They will also learn about issues of poverty, its effect on children and the resourcefulness of children in overcoming the challenges that life presents. You will learn what it means to be a role model for youth.
