For The Youth Weekly Workshops:
For The Youth (FTY) New Orleans is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing after school programming for children in and around the Lower Ninth Ward. FTY is run by Reone Watts (Founder and President), Melanie Pittman (Board Member), Chantal Banks (Board Member), and Tianshica Lawrence (Board Member). They started the organization in order to give back to the youth of their community, believing in the principle that every child needs praise, guidance, encouragement, love and security. FTY provides three weekly afterschool workshops (Modeling Mondays, Work Out Wednesdays & Freestyle Fridays) for youth at the Lower Ninth Ward Living Museum.
