Bayou Grace has partnered with the Calcutta Project to support local youth participating in the Calcutta Project Tutoring and Mentoring Program. This summer, the Calcutta Project held 20 sessions of activities that included art camps, guitar lessons, various sports, and hands on activities focused on increasing skills that are critical to academic and personal success. Fifty-six local youth benefitted from the program this summer.
With the start of the school year drawing near, the Calcutta Project is ready to resume after school tutoring. This program is open to all local youth and there is no charge to participate. Bayou Grace is proud to support the Calcutta Project through a grant from the Coastal Communities Fund at the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
