Quotations:
In areas with low adult education levels and few programs directly targeting the needs of youth, many students lack the guidance and support necessary to be successful in school and enroll in post-secondary education. Project Excel provides a necessary resource to youth in under-served communities, bridging the gap between school and home educational support.

Mission statements

Project Excel is a youth tutoring and enrichment program focused on the long-term academic success of youth in under-resourced areas of New Orleans. Through collaborative outreach with local schools, organizations, and community members, the program provides holistic educational support to youth by targeting strategic goals of academic literacy, inspired learning, and leadership development.

Value statement

Project Excel believes the power to transform education is right before our eyes. We see a vibrant resource in the skills, strength, and knowledge of the individuals in our community. By connecting students with the resources of the community, we build partnerships that are equally valuable to students and the surrounding community. These partnerships enhance learning opportunities for students
