Community Works has been serving Louisiana since 2009. Our programs have been proven to strengthen students self confidence and attitude about school, engage students who may not benefit from traditional methods of teaching, and shape students into becoming leaders in their community.

Engagement + Differentiated Learning = Enrichment
