We are a nonprofit collaborative initiative with a mission to keep you, the talented young professionals of New Orleans, in our great city. Our goal is to connect you to key people, events and opportunities and ensure that New Orleans is a place for you to thrive and grow. Our twice weekly e-mails highlight opportunities for civic and social engagement and leadership development, and often include special event discounts just for young professionals. You’ll also be the first to know about 504ward signature events. If you’re currently living away, we’ll share some opportunities for you to stay engaged with what’s going on in the new New Orleans and how you can Be a Local with us wherever you are. The best part is 504ward is free to join–all you have to do is sign-up for our e-mails, and you’re on the list!
