MY LIFE Baton Rouge - Thursday, May 19th

The next MY LIFE Baton Rouge event will be held Thursday, May 19th , 2016 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Family and Youth Service Center - 1120 Government Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.

MY LIFE Baton Rouge meets the 3rd Thursday of every month.


We are excited that Magellan Health in Louisiana has partnered with Ekhaya Youth Project to lead MY LIFE in Louisiana! Ekhaya’s Dashawn Harris is serving as Statewide MY LIFE coordinator; and Ethraim Franklin and Jarrin Ross are serving as the coordinators of MY LIFE Baton Rouge. There is no doubt, that with this new partnership, MY LIFE and the youth it serves will reach new heights in Louisiana!


MY LIFE Louisiana was established in 2012 when MY LIFE groups were started in Baton Rouge and Shreveport. Over 75 monthly MY LIFE meetings/events have been held in the state since then, averaging 25 attendees per event. In addition to continuing the original groups in Baton Rouge and Shreveport, we will soon be launching new MY LIFE groups in other parts of the state.
