Strong City is a 501c3 organization that works to actively improve the lives of New Orleans youth by partnering with community organizations that disrupt cycles of poverty and violence that hinder their ability to flourish. Directly engaging with and supporting established missions with strong ties to the New Orleans community allows us to commit our resources in an impactful and meaningful way. We utilize our strong network of Tulane students and alumni to assist our current partners: The Youth Empowerment Project and The New Orleans Women's and Children's Shelter, in identifying and providing the most impactful resources that are just outside their reach.
WHAT WE DO
We plan, supply resources, and volunteer for events in collaboration with our community partners: The Youth Empowerment Project and The New Orleans Women and Children's Shelter.
We fundraise for our community partners, The New Orleans Women's and Children's Shelter and The Youth Empowerment Project. This spring, we are working to raise $3.5K fo provide a room at the New Orlean's Women's and Children's Shelter. In 2022, we raised over $7,000 and fed over 160 families in the New Orleans Community for our Thanksgiving Drive.
Strong City relies on its network of students, alumni, and community partners to accomplish many of the goals we set for ourselves. We provide guidance and practical experience to empower the next generation of Tulane students to do the same.
