What’s Up in the YLP: October Edition

Lots of big happenings this month in our Youth Leadership Program!

School Round-Up

Congratulations to August 2016 graduates Da’Mon (Tumma) Keelen, Noel (Know) Jackson, and Diana (DiDi) Otowoshe, who joined the ranks of college students! Tumma and Know are pursuing degrees in general studies at Delgado Community College; DiDi is pursuing a degree in mass communication at UNO. We are so proud and can’t wait to see what’s next!

Bourbon House = Team LK

On October 17th,  Chefs Devan Giddix and Rene Bajeux  hosted a group of LK graduates at Bourbon House, of the Dickie Brennan family of restaurants. Attendees gained insight into the path to become a chef as well as creating a sustainable work-life balance, toured their fabulous kitchen and event spaces, learned to efficiently shuck oysters, and of course sampled delicious items off the menu. Thanks to Bourbon House for such an exceptional experience!

On the Horizon: Health and Wellness

Starting Tuesday, November 1st, LK grads will have an opportunity to work out their bodies along with their minds in a newly formed running group. Look for us jogging the Lafitte Greenway every Tuesday morning, weather permitting!
