Kedila Family Learning Services

ABOUT THE AGENCY
Kedila Family Learning Services is a non-profit organization formed after Hurricane Katrina to address the lack of social services as the New Orleans population returned. The current national illiteracy crisis 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.

WHAT YOU DO
Service learning students will help during our in-school and after-school programs by providing one-on-one homework help and assistance with enrichment activities. Service learners will also mentor and serve as role models for the children participating in the after school program.

WHAT YOU LEARN
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.
