I’m a senior at Birmingham-Southern College graduating with a degree in Global Comparative Studies and Spanish. When I began weighing my options for how to spend my final term (a four week “semester” at BSC where students can take a class on campus, participate in a travel project, do some sort of independent study, or just take the month off!) I realized that it was time for me to get some real world experience and do something outside of the classroom.
Please submit a photo and biographical information to the United Way Tocqueville Society Book by July 1st.
If you need a photo taken, please contact Nancy Shoemaker to schedule time between June 28-June 30.
Thank you for your support and participation.
Studies show that young people leaving foster care at 18 years old before being connected to a permanent family through adoption, returning home to parents or having a relative take custody of them, have very poor outcomes compared to their peers. The youth have increased incidence of homelessness and involvement in the criminal justice system and lower educational achievement.
My name is Kate and I’m a student at Tulane. Over the past few months, I’ve been working with United Way of Southeast Louisiana as a component of my Women’s Legislative Leadership class. As part of my research, I looked at the state of mental health care accessibility in Louisiana and wanted to share my findings as we enter Mental Health Awareness Month.
Greetings! I'm Beatrice Forlano, the incoming chair of United Way of Southeast Louisiana's young professionals' affinity group, the Young Leaders Movement (YLM).
United Way of Southeast Louisiana, serving Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington parishes is accepting donations to assist those impacted by flooding in our region. Family members, neighbors and friends have had to be rescued from rising waters.
Torrential rains have caused widespread flooding throughout southeast Louisiana—damaging homes and businesses, and leaving many wondering what to do next.
