The Association strives to motivate and educate our nation's young people about the economic and personal opportunities afforded them through the American free enterprise system.

A Reminder of What Makes Us So Unique...
Learn more about the efforts made by New Orleans' own Harry Connick and Branford Marsalis to create a Musicians' Village which allowed many local musicians to return home after Hurricane Katrina. Thanks also to all the wonderful volunteers with Habitat for Humanity who have supported this project and turned this dream into a realty.
We would also like express our deep appreciation to the People of Qatar for their significant support of Loyola University New Orleans through the Qatar-Katrina Scholarship Fund. Thanks to their generosity, a total of 184 students received assistance during the life of this program (spring 2007 through summer 2009 semesters).
