Our Projects

We have partnerships with the Martin Luther King Health Center and Zanmi Lasante (Partners in Health in Haiti). We've worked to help the MLKHC establish a brand, understand their patients, compete in Give for Good, establish a community garden, and move to a new facility. You never know what a non-profit will need. Students regularly volunteer on clinic days at the MLKHC. We're working with Zanmi Lasante to better coordinate projects in and around Cange, Haiti. By gathering knowledge and building relationships, we lay the foundation for any successful international project.

Students can earn Career and Community credit working with Santé in Shreveport. Students who travel to Haiti may earn Culture credit.

Mission

In the world, in our community, within blocks from Centenary, people suffer from easily preventable diseases. Why does this happen? What can be done about it? More importantly, what are we going to do about it?.

Santé partners with the community to improve the health of some of the least advantaged people and produce students who are committed to overcoming poverty and prepared for careers of service, both nationally or internationally.

See our four part approach for more about how the program is designed to produce the effective, committed graduates sought after by employers.
