THE BIG CONCEPTS

ENVIRONMENT

Our understanding of the importance of community has led us to create and adopt programs dedicated towards community enrichment.

EXCELLENCE

Our ultimate goal is to improve the lives of as many people as we can. We encourage people to set and achieve goals to improve their current way of life with these programs.

ME180 TEEN COURT

We've partnered with Youth Development Group and the New Iberia City Court to bring Teen Court to New Iberia. Teen Court is an alternative program that offers young offenders an opportunity to make restitution through community service, classes, and jury services to avoid fines and keep their record clear. Teen Court will allow juveniles with disciplinary troubles a chance to be tried by their peers.

THE HBCU EXPERIENCE

The HBCU Experience is an educational and virtual experience that brings students to HBCUs to explore HBCU college life as it is. Through partnerships with HBCUs and their organizations, students will be presented HBCUs at their full capacity and receive access to exclusive scholarships and recruitment opportunities.

Crisis Intervention will provide resources (financial, physical, emotional, etc.) to people in the community who need immediate assistance in preventing harm in their households and communities.
