The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and Mercedes-Benz USA will be placing 26 coaches in local communities that will help over 3,000 children through the Up2U Coach Across America program. Budget cuts in after-school programs across the country have been leaving Americas youth at risk to engage in unlawful activities. Investing in community-based coaches that will act as mentors in New Orleans is important to ensuring that our youth has access to constructive activities.

This program in New Orleans is going to be a new market for Coaches Across America and they will train and place 26 coaches in 11 local after-school programs that will benefit the New Orleans Community. These coaches will be mentors and community organizers. The communities that will be included in this program are; Marrero, Gentilly, Algiers, Gretna, Broadmoor and New Orleans East. The program is focused on presenting safe and healthy choices to youth that are forced to choose from doing drugs or join a gang.
