2022 Partner City
Aspen Challenge is partnering with New Schools for New Orleans (NSNO) for the 2021-2022 school year. NSNO’s mission is to deliver on the promise of excellent public schools for every child in New Orleans. To guide their work, NSNO has established a set of core values that they rely on to fulfill that mission. NSNO prioritizes work around race, equity, and inclusiveness within each of their priorities. They know that their pursuit of anti-racism and equity, both within their organization and outside it, is necessary and must be ongoing.
I challenge you to design a program that employs kindness interventions—both online and offline—in order to improve the collective mental health of our communities.
I challenge you to design a solution that will address the mobility and transportation challenges for youth throughout the city of New Orleans.
I challenge you to design a community campaign and program that amplifies the existing strengths and beauty of New Orleans’ neighborhoods as a counternarrative to the historical spring and summer upticks of community violence.
I challenge you to educate your peers about current events and policies that will have long-term impacts on the environment and to create a program that empowers your peers to take organized action against the climate crisis.
