MISSION

VISION

To create a better community, a safer city, and adequate opportunities for the youth of New Orleans; while also promoting music, art, and education in an effort to amalgamate New Orleans’ inimitable culture.

FUNDRAISERS

Each year, In an effort to help support the DSEF movement, the cultural community of New Orleans comes together to honor the legacy of the late Dinerral Shavers. We are so very grateful for the continued support of New Orleans’ elite brass bands and its citizens. It is because of their hard work and dedication that achieving our mission is possible.

PROGRAMS

We help students discover their divine purpose in life and to embody the confidence needed to defeat their fears and achieve their dreams. DSEF also aims to counter the culture of violence by awarding New Orleans youth with opportunities through scholarships, education, arts, music, and culture.

Kensey, Student

I go to DSEF Back to School Extravaganza every year! It's FREE, festive and saves me & other local parents lots of money on school supplies. My daughter even got her hair done!
