Freret Neighborhood Center
ABOUT THE AGENCY
The Freret Neighborhood Center, located 1 mile from Loyola’s campus, works with neighborhood residents of all ages. The Center gathers people together to learn new skills, improve the community, and have fun. Some of the activities offered to neighbors include afterschool programs for youth and the resource center, a free community computer lab which provides tutoring for basic computer skills.
WHAT YOU DO
Service learners will support the ongoing operations of the Freret Neighborhood Center by tutoring and assisting youth with art projects, working with adults to learn basic computer skills, performing light office work and conducting community outreach about Freret Neighborhood Center activities.
WHAT YOU LEARN
Loyola service learners will become members of a local community and learn about the needs and assets of people living in the Freret/Milan neighborhood. Students will improve their communication skills, problem solving ability, and ability to interact with diverse populations.
