Neighborhood Story Project: “The Neighborhood Story Project works with high school students and their families to write about their lives and neighborhoods. Students learn to write creative non-fiction and vignettes, conduct in-depth interviews of family members and neighbors, and take photographs. Community writing projects allow us to be the authors of our own stories, and infuse our community with real and important literature.
The Neighborhood Story Project is a collaborative partnership between John McDonogh Senior High, the Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans, and the University of New Orleans. New Orleans Saints’ player Steve Gleason’s One Sweet World Foundation has also been a big part of making this project possible.”
