Junior League of New Orleans


Absenteeism is a serious issue in our local schools and paves the path to poor academic performance, school dropouts, and even encounters with the juvenile justice system.  Junior League of New Orleans is proud to partner with the Greater New Orleans Salvation Army on their Emerge Program, which rewards students for perfect school attendance. 

Through generous donations made by the Salvation Army, Junior League members shop from holiday wish-lists made by those students who have obtained perfect attendance during the first half of the school year.  The gifts are distributed during the winter holiday season and the program is capped off by a wonderful party for the students sponsored by the New Orleans Hornets, the Recovery School District, Richard's Disposal and the Salvation Army.
