Kedila Family Learning Services
Kedila Family Learning Services is a non-profit organization that was formed after Hurricane Katrina and Gustav in New Orleans to address the lack of social services as the city's population slowly returned. The current national crisis of high illiteracy rates is especially evident in the New Orleans school system. We offer hope to those who have been left behind and help to close the gap of poverty.
Service learning students will help during the first hour of our after school program by providing one-on-one homework help. During the second hour of our program, service learning students will help supervise and offer support for enrichment activities. Service learners will also mentor and serve as role models for the children participating in the after school program.
By serving at Kedila, Loyola service learners can improve their classroom management, teamwork, communication, and work readiness skills. Students will also learn responsibility and accountability.
