Fostering Enrichment and Student-Driven Thinking


DiscoveryFEST Enrichment Program aims to make the hours of a child’s day  rich with play, learning, and discovery. Through DiscoveryFEST, skilled master teachers, coaches, and artists train New Orleans youth in culinary arts, dance, music, visual arts, theater, creative writing, sports, nutrition, character education, design, and more. DiscoveryFEST provides a critical, interdisciplinary enrichment experience that nurtures students’ self-esteem, confidence, social skills, creativity, and problem-solving skills that will help them be the next generation of thinkers and doers.



DiscoveryFEST aims to provide quality afterschool, recess, and summer programs from experienced providers and qualified staff, featuring hands-on activities that build on what students learn in school.
