Join Us in the Youth Master Plan Development Process!


The Youth Master Plan is New Orleans’ opportunity to build youth leadership and create a plan that sets the stage for all children and youth to achieve their full potential. The Youth Master Plan will be a one-stop roadmap for all to see where our city’s youth are going and how they are going to get there.

The Youth Master Plan will be developed over a ten-month process that brings together
young people, parents, educators, community leaders, and other key stakeholders. The plan will cover the next ten years (2020-2030) and it will include all the sectors of our community that have responsibility for improving the future of children and youth, birth to 24 years, across Orleans Parish.


Voice and Hope: Prioritize the voices and hopes of young people through their involvement as leaders.
Resources and Services: Ensure organizations serving children and youth plan for resources needed every year.
Outcomes and Accountability: Hold organizations accountable for outcomes through the services they provide to children and youth.
Invest Together: Call for all hands-on deck building and investing in a shared plan for New Orleans youth that brings their potential to life.
