Heroes of New Orleans

local women who have made the city a better place

Through Heroes of New Orleans students identify, research and write about local women who have made the city a better place. By learning about the barriers women faced and how they overcame them, Heroes provides role models for young people to draw upon when faced with obstacles in their own lives. 

Heroes can be adapted to any school and age groups, and can be used as a model to be replicated in other communities, near and far.  If you're interested, fill out the form to receive the Toolkit to learn about using Heroes in the classroom.  Someone from the Heroes team will contact you to talk more about how your school can take part.
