Our Achievements

In ten years of operation Generation One has impacted the residents of the Third Ward community by conducting revitalization projects and sponsoring events to create awareness of need while developing vision among residents of a transformed, hopeful, and productive community. Generation One created a school with year round classes, an after-school and summer program, and parent/ guardian training to equip children and their families with the skills necessary to be personally productive and sustain community transformation. After an evaluation of the first three years of operation and extensive review of early intervention programs, Generation One Academy staff now focus on the Social-Emotional learning (SEL) of the very young child and his/her family which was shown by experience and research to be critical to their current and future success academically and behaviorally.
