Connect2Educate (C2E) Collaborative Launches New Website Featuring the C2E Notebook Connect2Educate, a local collaborative of organizations whose mission is to connect resources with New Orleans public schools, has launched a new website (www.connect2educate.org), featuring the C2E Notebook, which contains profiles of 106 organizations that serve public schools and public school children in Orleans Parish. Formed in 2008, the C2E Collaborative coordinated a networking event among school representatives and community resource providers in March 2009, and published the C2E Notebook, which details more than 100 organizations whose programming is offered to public schools and public school students. The C2E Notebook closes the knowledge gap about the availability of programs among school leadership teams. Armed with current, relevant information, every public-school community is now better equipped to engage those programs which enrich the school experience for children. Information on the C2E Collaborative and a PDF version of the C2E Notebook are available on the website. The Connect2Educate (C2E) Collaborative is an alliance of diverse organizations including the LEH, the Greater New Orleans Afterschool Partnership, Communities In Schools-New Orleans, Save Our Schools-New Orleans, and Start the Adventure in Reading, and over 100 community resource providers.
