Navigate Nola is the social and emotional community wellness division of DSCEJ Inc. The division takes an asset based approach to cultivating an environment where New Orleans youth can thrive. Navigate Nola utilizes existing strengths in the New Orleans community to create sustainable positive youth development programming. Navigate Nola programming seeks to meet the needs of young people across the various levels of the socio-ecological model (the individual level, the interpersonal level, the community level and the policy/societal level.

The core facets of the division are as follows: Navigate Her Documentary, Navigate Him Documentary, The Navigate Her Leadership Institute, and The High-School HBCU Climate Change Initiative. Through these facets, innovative strategies are utilized to promote leadership, civic engagement, social-emotional intelligence, and to enhance the social support systems of our most vulnerable youth. In addition to our core facets, we offer individualized interventions that are tailored to meet the specific needs of subpopulations within schools and/or youth serving community based organizations.
