Brown Foundation Service Fair

Yesterday, Eliza, Sandy, Sam and William represented YRNO at the Brown Foundation’s Service Learning Event/Fair at the Pontchartrain Center. Over 900 local students and teachers were in attendance. The Brown Foundation has renewed our grant this year, so we can continue funding our service learning initiative with partner high schools, including Jesuit High School and Sci Academy. Thanks so much!
