Super Service Challenge IV
CSX TRANSPORTATIONGARDEN BUILDCITY YEAR NEW ORLEANSNOVEMBER 9, 2013
On November 9, 2013 CSX Transportation Completed A Service Project With City Year New Orleans
Together, we enhanced the edible garden at Langston Hughes Academy in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans.
City Year is an education focused non-profit that provides targeted tutoring to students who are behind in math and literacy. This year, 42 corps members are serving in 4 FirstLine Schools, including Langston Hughes Academy.
Corps Members dedicate over 53,000 hours during their year of full-time service.
Last year, 90% of students who received tutoring in literacy increased their test scores.
66% of students who received tutoring in math increased their test scores.
During the Garden Build We
Built A Rain Garden
Planted New Seeds & Adjusted Irrigation Systems
Painted Murals, Garden Signs and Rabbit Enclosures
When You Support City Year, You Support The Children Of New Orleans
If we help City Year win a portion of the Super Service Challenge, funds will go to directly support the City Year corps and provide the resources to ensure more students get back on track in school.
At CSX, we support City Year every year by sponsoring the team at Langston Hughes Academy. In 2014, we will participate in City Years Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on January 20 at Arthur Ashe Charter School, which will focus on an acre-size garden build.
How Will YOU Serve?
