As you all know from past experience, City Year New Orleans participates in a day of service on MLK, Jr. Day every year. It is a day that brings City Year, past and present, together with members of the New Orleans community to serve the greater city and community of New Orleans. This year we're excited that our project's home-base will be at our partner school, Langston Hughes Academy.
