MoneyWi$e Financial Literacy Program
If you know of Gentilly residents who would benefit from one of our MoneyWi$e courses sponsored by the Bayou District Foundation (BDF), Kingsley House and Capital One Bank, please contact Kingsley House or attend the Financial Literacy Information Session March 10th at 6pm in the Community Room to learn more. The program will continue in March, May and September. The Moneywi$e program allows program graduates to have the opportunity to be certified by the Neighborhood Development Foundation (NDF) and start them on the road to home ownership. Please contact Gilda Johnson with Kingsley House at 504-282-2424 for more information.

A Columbia Parc resident meets Gary Bono, Board Chairman of Akili Academy. Thursday, February 24th the Bayou District Foundation and Columbia Parc co-hosted an Education Fair for families throughout the community. Nine schools participated in the fair: Akili Academy, Arthur Ashe Charter School, Gentilly Terrace Elementary, John Dibert Community School, Langston Hughes Academy Charter, Medard Nelson Charter School, Pierre Capdau Charter School, Ben Franklin High School and Thurgood Marshall High School. All schools demonstrated to prospective students how outstanding education opportunities exist in their own backyard.
