Bring opportunities to system-involved teens and young adults in New Orleans


At Travis Hill NOLA we equip system-involved young people with the academic, workforce readiness, and social and emotional skills they need to be free, successful, contributing members of the New Orleans community.

At the Travis Hill Schools, located inside of the City’s juvenile detention center and adult jail, we provide teens and young adults with a top notch education that is relevant, meaningful and designed to help students re-engage with school, both while detained and upon release.

Upon release, we embrace Travis Hill students through the Welcoming Project, our transition support and community engagement initiative. At the Welcoming Project we surround students with a team of caring adults, help them develop and pursue a passion, and offer unrelenting support and care for up to five years.

At Travis Hill NOLA, we see our students as fully worthy of our collective embrace; young people who, with love and support, will make the great city of of New Orleans even better, now and in the future.

We rely significantly on foundations, corporations, and individuals to support our work. If you believe in our mission and would like to make an online contribution to the Welcoming Project using your credit card or PayPal account, click below.
